Oysters were very important to Greenville's past. Frank Johnston, Alfred Cully, Johnson, Norcott & Co., Joe Forbes, J.J. Dancy, Jr., J.J. Cory, and J.R. Daniel & Co. all opened oyster restaurants or saloons in Greenville in the late nineteenth-century. Oyster boats came to the Greenville dock to sell oysters until the Tar River grew too shallow. By 1940, Greenville received its oysters by truck. The Tar River Oyster House was possibly J.R. Daniel & Co.'s original oyster house. Captain Jack Teel, or \"Cap'n Jack,\" opened the Tar River Oyster House in 1932. An arsonist burned down the Tar River Oyster House on May 12, 1953, and Capt. Teel rebuilt it out of cement block later that year. In 1967, Walter Woodard tore down the cement block Tar River Oyster House.
