|Title||Will Route Parkway Around Reservation (Page 1 of 2)|
|Date||July 9, 1935|
|Description||This article reports that the planned Blue Ridge Parkway will not cross the Cherokee Indian reservation as had been originally planned, due to a refusal on the part of the Cherokee council to grant the right-of-way through their land. Instead, says the article, the parkway will skirt the reservation on a ridge-top route.
