Title Think Parkway Will Be Through Linville Gorge (Page 2 of 2)
Date June 13, 1934
Description Continued from page 1 of 2

This article recounts various rumors "afloat in Washington" as to the possible route for the Parkway. Representative Doughton is cited as believing the Parkway will be in North Carolina as far South as Linville Gorge; below this the route is in question. Possibilities mentioned include an exclusively North Carolina route, a partial Tennessee route, and a loop route.
