THE PROPOSED PARKWAY
.lust what is this proposed park.to-piniv
scenic nnitf. or highway, that we have heard
amf ivad so much about lately; and how, if an;. ,
will it lieiictit this community ami the rest of
Western North Carolina'.' No doubt these ques
! ions are being- asked by hundreds . t hrourhoni
this section, because they cannot comprehend
immediately just what it is all about.
After a two hour conversation with frank
Mil!. )', member of the state highway co:n
,'iitssiini, and one of Uio.se who have been most
xiially interested in' bettor roads and the de
, e!opine;!t . of the park, wo learned much tha'
' jen tol'oty has been kepi 'uie',.
Mr;.. i'!y, lioro is 1 he st ory :

which are 100 miles apart, with a parkway. Xoi

at moderate rates of speed. No trucks Or com
mercial vehicles will be allowed on it. Neither
will there-be a filling station every hundred or
This ioiumie by liUd.foot park will, like
.-ill other national parks, be under the super.
v;.sion of the national park service. All main-,
rainence will be done by that sendee. All busi.
. tu'sses that are allowed on the route will Iv
under the direct control of the service, also.
On either side of the Si-fool drive, Will lie
54, feet of planted grass and trees, tog-ether
with shrubbery and anything else that will add
beauty to the route. Along the route the gov.
'.rnment will buy tracts of land of several hun
Unsd acres and establish a tamp site, or hotel
site for the convenience of those who will travel
the route. This is made more or less necessary
because-of-the fact that the highway does not
jfo Front town to town as state liig-hway.s do',
but this new route will go from park to park
:and traverse the territory between the two
parks that will be richest in scenic beauty.
Towns will be avoided.
Who is To determine where the richest
.-scenic -beauty, is, and have the filial say so in
t he location V
The Federal Park Service has app.'inted a
isimmission composed cf landscape oiigineers
a d road engineers to go over the territory Ik.
iV'Vn the two parks and lias authorized then
'-(' determine the most suitable location f.r
It so happens !hat when three states ar'
interested in one major project -tich as this.
there inure or less anxiety and competition.
fn order to give all concerned a fair opportunity.
the commission set dates recently and heard
delegations from each state present their claims
for the park-to-park route.
Virginia was first. Unfortunately her dele.
.tfatio? was split on the matter and presented
several -iutes, all: of Which the commissiou
.hfuinj with interest.
1 iu .-.-oend day of the hearing the delega.
lion from North Carolina presented their
t'hiims. Before apjiearing before: the commis
sion, the state highway commission very wisely
and carefully selected only one route and pre
sented the one route to the commission. Har
mony prevailed in every detail with thv North
Carolina delegation tiecause they were of one
accorcl, all of which impressed the commission
greatly, according to their own statements
later. The members of the state highway com
mission selected the route which they pro-posed
-without .personal feelings in. the matter other
than to -elect a scenic route which could not be
taxcelled in any other state. Territories and
sections were ignored except for their seen it
beauty. The third day the Tennessee delegates
were heard. They too, like Virginia, had not
agreed on one specific route before conferring
with the commission, and some having lost their
tempera short while before, made a rather poor
Beginning immediately, members of the
commission, will personally travel all the routes
which were proposed tr them by the three
states. This will likely take the greater part of
February. March and most of April. After
completing their tours, which will have to be
made mostly on horse back, the commission will
definitely decide on the location of the rou'.e.
Which ever state is fortunate enough in getting
the route will make the survev and then con.
st ruction will get underway immediately.
With the facts which North Carolina had
to present, and the manner in which they were
presented, there is little doubt but that the
route as proposed by the State will be accepted.
North Carolina will either get the route pro
posed, or not any. There are no substitutes.
Assuming that the route is granted, it is
interesting to know that Haywood County would
benefit materially from it. Now this one point
should be stressed here. Haywood County i
not sharing in this just because Frank Miller
is on the highway commission. Mr. Miller and
the other members of the commission followed
th" route provided by nature, and not that of'
t heir personal desires.
Although (iovernor -I. C. I!. Fhringhaus
has at times been severely criticized in Western
North Carolina, he went to bat for his critics and
made a hit with the commission in Baltimore
when preseiitng North Carolina's claim for the
paikway. He ignored criticism and worked for
the. interest of the state. Members of the dele
gal ion will likely receive some criticism for noi
favoring some .particular section, but a- stated
.'. -above, they . derided 'on the proposed route be
cause of its scenic beauty and not I localise of
its relation to counties or towns.
The route, as proposed, -enters, the state a!
I.ow Cap en the Virginia line and runs to Roar,
itig Cap, Wowing' Rock, Limiilo (iorge, Little
Switzerland, Mount Mitchell, The Craggies. then
across the French liroad -River to Mount I'isgah
where Buncombe, Henderson, .Transylvania and
Haywood Counties moot, r rom there the route
follows the Hayw-ood-Trausvlvania lino to the
Hay wood-Jackson county line on to balsam gan
to Joiie.s Knob on to Soco dap. on the Swam
From the time the route hits the place
whore the four counties moot, namelv Bun.
combe, Henderson, Transylvania. Havwood. the
route will maintain an average elevation ol ").
01 0 feet, going as high as b-rU) at Richland
Balsam. The lowest point will be at Balsam
dap where Highway No. 10 would be crossed,
this being V,M-t feet.
A careful study of the map will show that
no route could be made that would touch a
many counties and at the same time maintain
the scenic beauty that will be afforded by that
route. Just imagi.no a park 200 feet wide and
.". miles long with an elevation of o,000 feet 'on'
the borders of these counties just named. Wt
can't comprehend just what it will mean.
There are so many advantages that will be
a (forded by this route that they would bo hard
to mention in one article. One or two are as
follows: The entire lOo.milo route is to co-t
sixteen millions. Two hundred miles of the four
lumdred ale proposed to be in North Carolina
At least eight r ten millions would be spent i
this state alone. This is Federal Relief money.
The new route would open up country that
heretofore, has been isolated from the rest of
the world. : Mountain craft being sold to the
millions that would travel this route would bring
a new source of revenue into this county.
The new route would enable summer visi
tors to make a new and complete loop-drive
daily am! see new country each day for an in
definite period. The advantages are so numer
ous that they cannot be enumerated.
The Mountaineer has said time and time
again that nature has wonderfully blest this
section of the world called Western North Caro
lina, and we believe that the world, will soon
have a new way to get to this section, and that
way will be by the park-to-park scenic rout a;
which will follow the top of the rugged ranges
which nature has so bountifully provided in
this section, and of which no other state can
