HAYWOOD COUNTY APPRECIATE
SMOKY NATIONAL PARK?
No doubt there are hundreds of citizens of
Haywood county that have not yet fully real
ized just what the (I rent Smoky Mountain Na
tional Park will mean to this county. This is of
ten the case people from other sections many
times can see our advantage', opportunities
mid progress better than thost- living in that
community. Uitfht here within a few miles of
us is one of the most talked of sections in the
United States, the park. Not only are these
thousands of people talking of this park but
they are planning to come here and really sjje
fur themselves the handiwork of nature and
tmjoy, without a doubt, the most beautiful of
sill -mountain scenery in the: United 'States..'
We have always had these mountains and
tfrough rtlfenr beautiful bTirvefr seTBom diet
we' shout our praise from the housetops ' to
the outside world to let them know of nature's
gift to Western North Carolina. This week
in the New York Evening Post there appeared
the following editorial giving facts to thous
ands about the new park.
Title to the Smokies
"Actual development of America's newest
national park has moved one step closer now
that the states of North Carolina and Tennes
see have formally presented title to 1450,000
acres of land in the Great Smoky Mountains to
the Federal Government. The land included in
the transfer constitutes approximately seven
eights of the 248 square miles designated for
inclusion in the new park, an area which lies
along the North Carolina-Tennessee border
and takers in at least twenty mountains more
than 6,000 feet high, some of the most beauti
ful wild Valleys in the East and hard-wood for
ests unrivaled anywhere on the continent.
"The Croat Smoky Park will be unique in
that it is being created by gifts of the lands
I from the states. All the other twenty-two na-
I ional parks were created from unappropriated
I Federal lauds. For several years, however, pri-
.vate interests have been acquiring land in
I Jackson's Hole in Wyoming for a similar pur
pose, and it is understood that the time is near
when it too, will be turned over to the Federal
Government for administration as a national
park. Hut to date the Great Smoky Park stands
unique in that respect. ' ;
"The Smokies are already accessible from
the North Carolina side, with good roads from
Asheville.Therc also is the ground work for a
highway system which will no doubt eventually
link the new park with that part of Virginia
where another national preservation is expected
to be created, including some of the beautiful
wild country in which President Hoover's Iiap
idan camp is tituated. A few more years un
doubtedly will see much of this Blue 'Ridge
country made readily accessible to the eastern
motorist who'appreciated its beauties."
