Last April we began to advertise our town lots, making
at that time a number of statements in regard to what wc
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 line brick and stone freight station, one of the
largest on the road, and will shorty erect a fine passenger
station, while the Clinch Valle\r 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; two 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
offices, and a fine stone bank building is Hearing comple?
tion. Machinery for the rolling mill is on the grounds,
and the track to the coal mines, three miles away, is com?
pleted, and coal is now coming out. A steam brick plant,
the most complete in Southwest Virginia, is in operation,
and a large amount of grading and other work is going on.
This work attracts a great deal of attention, while Rich
lands is merely at the end of a non-completed line. The
completion of the Clinch Valley division this fall, and the
running of through trains between Washington and
Louisville, putting Richlands 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
greater promise than any town in Southwest Virginia.
