134 Salem Avenue, Roanoke, Virginia.
Last April we began to advertise our town lots, making
at that time a number of statements in regard to what we
would do. Through the non-completion of the Clinch
Valley extension of the Norfolk and Western our railroad
facilities at that time were very limited. We had no rail?
road station and, indeed, one old farmhouse was the total
sign of life about the place. Since then the railroad has
erected a fine brick and stone freight station, one of the
largest on the road, and will shortly erect a fine passenger
station, while the Clinch Valley Company has spent, or is
under contract to expend, $350,000. A four-story hotel,
the finest in Southwest Virginia, is under roof; a hand?
some iron bridge, of 180 feet span, crosses the Clinch
river; ; \ - second-class hotels have been built, and a large
number of stores are building under contract. The com?
pany has erected a handsome three-story building for its
pffio . lid a line stone bank building is Hearing comple?
tion. V ichinery for the rolling mill is on the grounds,
-sind the track to the coal mines, three miles away, is com?
plete <?>? coal is now coming out. A steam brick plant,
tlu most omplete in Southwest Virginia, is in operation,
and ' ? ;e amount of grading and other work is going on.
'Tliii vork attracts a great deal of attention, while Rich
lav UK rely at the end of a non-completed line. The
coin] I tio of the Clinch Valley division this fall, and the
running ;>f through trains between Washington and
Louisville, putting Riehlands immediately on a through
line, will give an impetus to the prosperity of the town
[Sufficient to throw it ahead of all competitors, and the at?
tention of investors is called to real estate here as giving
g eater promise than any town in Southwest Virginia.
