What’s the history of the Triangle Lounge building? Are there any photos?

Reader Sheila Freeman is looking for some information about the history of a local bar:

“Hello, do you know if there are any pictures of the Triangle Lounge on Wrightsville Avenue when it was a grocery store or any pictures available of its history? Thank you!”

If you can help Sheila, leave a comment below.

Photos can be emailed to jim.ware@starnewsonline.com.

    I have seen it since the 50s and it has always been a bar/lounge. Must have been way back.

    Hey, Jim. The place was originally owned by Peggy Arnette and her husband. Their daughter, Lora Etta Arnette introduced my mom and dad. :) I believe I saw a picture of Peggy and/or Lora Etta behind the bar there last time I stopped by.

    I’ll just say, it was a wild place back in the late 60″s. Lot of fishermen,or people from Wrightsville sound, seagate area, not to mention Brown & Root crowd when they were here building Sutton Plant. People from all over. You could go there.have a blast and if walls could talk, I would love to hear what they have to say. I did have some pictures, but not any that would really show building or outside.

    I grew up on Wrightsville Ave. I can remember in the late 1940 that it was a grocery store. I can’t remember if they also sold gasoline. Also right down the road on the other side there was a dairy farm owned by a man named Dunk Smith. He also had horses.
