It was incorporated bv the legislature in 1845 and was, as far s I am able to discoved, the first jraded dirt toll turnpike inaugurated in the state to take the place of the .ld plank roads, of which there were mite a number in those sections of he state where the terrain (to employ i word tnat has come into our vocabu !ary through the ereat war was suit i ' -a. ... iDie lor easy grading. .Naturally there .vere more of these plank roads in '-he eastern and central norfcions af i hp tate the level and gently rolling sec tions tnan the west.

Colo nel Lenoir, who died in 18G0, owned thousands of acres of land in Caldwell and Watauga counties, including the great Grandfather Mountain along the crdst of which runs the line between the : two ; counties. His passion was "good roads" and among those ' he built at his own exnense is a beauti fully graded road from Lenoir to the top of beautiful Hibriten Mountain, which also belonged to him. rrom its source.

All along here the forest lands be longed to the estate of Colonel Har per and are now the nronertv of his grandsons, John H. and James Lenoir Ciiley of Hickory and Gordon IL Cil ley, of Philadelphia. There is a happy thought, whether orisrinatine- with the Cilley boys or with Mr. Pate . and Mr. Upman, I know not, but it is about, to be realized in a beautiful fountain to be erected at Harper's Falls and dedi cated to the memory of James Clar- nce Harper and William Averv Le noir: This fountain, it is expected, will overtop the famous "Andrews Gey ser" at Round Knob. A suggestion as to an iriscrirjtion to be placed upon the base of the foun tain is given herewith: "Erected in .' memory of Colonel James C. Harper and of Colonel Wil liam A.
