Another development which will be
a step toward making this section
rival the famous Sapphire country of
North Carolina is the construction of
a tourist hotel in Table Rock Cove, 20
miles north of Pickens, announcement
of which is made by J. P. Carey, Jr.,
of Pickens.
The old hotel building near Table
Rock :s to be torn away at once and
a modern hostelry will be erected in
Table Rock Cove, several miles dis
tant, Mr. Carey stated. The promot
ers of the new hotel are Mr. Carey
and Wade H. Chastain, who manages
the vast preserves throughout this
section of the Carolina Timber Com
Work cf tearing down the old hotel,
a part of the material of which will
be used in the new structure, will be
not later than August 1, Mr. Carey
stated. It is planned to erect a hotel
with :30 guest rooms, while it is po.
sible that this number will be increas.
ed should the volume of traffic de.
mand it.
Owing to the late start of the pre
sent season, no effort will be made to
open the hotel before 1923. Ilow
cver, it is planned to have the place
ready for tourist at the beginning of
ncxt summer and various attractions
will be providedl for the incoming
plkasure seekers.
3r. Carey said that present plans
did not call fGr the construction of a
huge lake, cn the order of Lake Toxa
way. Such a report was generally
circulated about Pickens, but :s with
cut foundation for present. However,
M\r. Carey made it plain that amuse
ments' would be pirovided for the
guests and it is considered that if the
travel to this section meets expeeta
tions a number of devclopments may
* be made before the opening of the
1923 season.

Dr. R. Kirksey, one of the owners

this number lown to the minimum. i;
That Table Rock was once famous as f
