|Title||Hearing Will Be Held On W.N.C. Parkway Routes|
|Date||June 22, 1934|
|Description||This article reports that secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes will grant a hearing to hear protests from North Carolina over the proposal to route the Blue Ridge Parkway into Tennessee South of Linville Gorge. Representative Weaver protested the decision and Ickes agreed to hear this protest at a hearing in Washington. Mentions the sentiment of many in Asheville that routing the parkway as suggested by Tennessee would "deprive" visitors of much North Carolina scenery.|
