A glorious welcome to the Orang- »nd ammunition into . oaeteia
ers of the entire State Is being
planned by ' the patrons and
friends of hudbandry of this com
munity. ‘
The WSlkesboros with a popu
lation of more than 5,b00 people
situated in the heart of the
mountains of Northwest North
a constitute a community
believable charm and de
light. ' They' are located_^r in the
Great Valley through which runs
the beautiful Yadkin and are
hedged in on the south by the
Brushies of some five miles dis
tance and On the northwest by
the Spurs and low lying ridges
contiguous to the Blue Ridge.
They enjoy a wonderful climate,
rarely ever knowing either of
the extremes of temperature.
The county of Wilkes was
formed by the Legislature of
North Carolina In the year 1777
at the instance of Col Ben Cleve
land, a native of the county and
a Revolutionary War hero. It is
one of the largest ’ counties in
the state, being surjjpunded and
touched by eight other counties,
a distinction which only one
other county, Chatham, shares,
grows well all of the grain crops
raised In North Carolina, and
produces potatoes, tobacco, cot
ton, and air manner of vegetables
with ease. Its orchards are unriv
aled. The apples, /peaches, and
other fruits of the Brushies con
stitute the chief industry of all
that section of the county.
Poultry raising is a noted in
dustry of the county. ’There are
a number of hatcheries in the
‘Wilkesboros and nearby com
munities which furnish chicks
for both local and Southwide
markets. An interesting fact is
that at one thne during the
hatching season one of these
hatcheries had 16,000 chicks. E.
E. Elller and Son of North Wll
kesboro is the largest shipper of
poultry products In the State.
The city of North Wllkesboro
is ideally located for a shipping
point of many products from a
wide territory. It is at the head
of the branch line of the South
ern Railroad out of Winston-
Salem and is traversed by State
Highways Nos. 16, 18, and 60,
and U. S. No. 421. The Great
Scenic Highway to be construct
ed along the Blue Ridge may be
reached within thirty ' minutes
drive over either one of three
State highways^
