After retirement, Ada wanted something to do, especially during the winter months. She decided to put her wood working knowledge to good use. Ada started out making a few pictures of barns for family members and then one thing led to another. She started going to some art shows and people started to see her artwork and liked it. With the encouragement from family and friends she is now creating more than just barns. Ada exhibits at the Alleghany Public Library and at the Pine's Restaurant. Ada can be reached at 336-359-8303.

WELCOME TO SPARTA, N.C.

Welcome To Sparta...

Photo by Stewart Royall - See bio on page 4.

September 11, 1935, Blue Ridge Parkway construction began in Alleghany County. No one was more pleased than Alleghany's Congressman Bob Doughton, "Father of the Blue Ridge Parkway." As chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, descendants say "Farmer Bob" had an agreement with President Franklin Roosevelt: If the Parkway passes through Alleghany County, Social Security will pass through Congress. The rest is history. We feel a special kinship to the Blue Ridge Parkway and in honor of its 75th anniversary, this issue of the SPARTA Magazine includes historical snapshots of the Parkway's beginnings. I hope you will make plans to attend the Parkway's 75th Anniversary Celebration, Sept. 10-12, 2010. The festivities will take place just down the road from Sparta at Cumberland Knob at Mile Post 217.5, and the Blue Ridge Music Center, Mile Post 213. However, anytime is a good time to visit our neck of the woods. Because if you like the Parkway, you'll love Alleghany County. Our back roads still wind through pastoral splendor. Our vistas take your breath away. The New River steals your heart and Sparta still bustles with small-down hospitality. If Farmer Bob were to return today, he would immediately recognize his community. When you are in town, please stop by the Alleghany Chamber of Commerce and Visitors' Center. We're on Main Street in the rock building with the green awning across from the Farmers' Hardware parking lot and you are always welcome. Hopefully we can answer your questions and help assure your visit is enjoyable. Regardless of the hour, our lobby is open 24/7 and is packed with area information. - Bob Bamberg, Director Alleghany County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center 58 South Main Street • P.O.

Doughton Park... Doughton Park (Mile Posts 238-245) is one of the largest developed areas on the Parkway and is located just a few miles from Sparta. It is a landscape of open meadows where deer, fox and raccoon are plentiful and flame azalea and rhododendron flaunt their color. Originally known as the Bluffs, it is named in honor of the late U.S. Congressman, Robert L. Doughton, long-time advocate and supporter of the Parkway. Bluffs Lodge and Restaurant (MP 241 336-372-4499) offer accommodations and meals May through October. Camping, numerous trails and fishing are among the outdoor attractions. The Lodge and campground offer regular programs on nature and history late spring through early fall. Brinegar Cabin and Homestead, Mile Post 238.5, offers a window into life of early settlers. Martin Brinegar (1863-1925) and his young bride, the former Caroline Joines (1863-1943), raised three children on 125 acres of what would become the Blue Ridge Parkway. The homestead provided most of their necessities, crops like corn, buckwheat, rye, oats, wheat, sorghum, potatoes and turnips. What they couldn't raise, they traded for with neighbors. Caroline was illiterate but could read the weaving patterns for the "four-poster" loom, built by her father as a wedding present. From the farm's wool and flax (linen) she wove a durable "linsey-woolsy" cloth. She and the children collected wild herbs to sell to drug merchants in Jefferson and Boone. Martin was a cobbler and made shoes that sold for a dollar a pair. These herbs and shoes brought in their only cash. Martin was clerk for the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, a small church still active today. He died in 1925. Caroline remained in the cabin for ten years before moving in with a daughter. The Parkway bought the property and has maintained it as living history of life a century ago. During the summer, a ranger demonstrates weaving on a four-poster. Special programs the second Saturday in August celebrate early mountain life. (540-745-9680) In the fall, birders flock to the Mahogany Rock Overlook (MP 235) for the annual hawk watch. Basin Cove Creek complex (MP 238 - 244) has rainbow and brook trout where the streams are stocked. Anyone with a valid Virginia or North Carolina fishing license is welcome. The roadway is open year round, except for periods of winter ice and snow. For more information, call the Bluffs Ranger Office at 336-372-5868.

I think you will agree that the beauty of the landscape along the Parkway and along the byways throughout Alleghany County is exceptional. If you are considering relocating to Alleghany County, I can't imagine a better place to live. Our schools excel in their educational quality. I don't think you'll find friendlier neighbors anywhere else. I hope the information presented here answers any questions you may have about the county. And if you should become a resident of Alleghany, county government stands ready to serve you. - Ken Richardson, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners

TOWN WELCOME

Sparta Town Council Town Council Members: Mike Parlier, Robert Andrews, Mayor John Miller, John Brady, Agnes Joines, Lois Sheets and Town Manager Bryan Edwards

As Alleghany County's only municipality, Sparta is the hub of business and community life. It is a thriving community and with its cool summer temperatures it is a popular vacation destination. If you chose to visit, our friendly businesses are eager to serve you. We are proud of all our small town has to offer. Be sure to visit Crouse Park, one of the nicest town parks you will find in a community of our size. There is something to do for all age groups. We recently opened a skate park there and it has proven to be very popular with our young people. If you are considering a move, the Town of Sparta is always ready to welcome new residents. - John Miller, Mayor of Sparta

Parkway Comes to North Carolina

The automobile unleashed a passion for travel in the early 20th century. Auto clubs sprang up to guide motorists over local and state roads required to travel cross-country. Alleghany County was on the path of the Great Lakes to Florida Auto Trail connecting Detroit, MI, with Jacksonville, FL. In the fall, snowbirds - northern residents who spent the winter in warmer climates - wound their way through Sparta and continued southward. Spring saw their return. Boarding homes, motels and tourist courts provided lodging. In 1926 the federal highway system was established. The Great Lakes to Florida Trail became US 21. Alleghany native and U.S. Congressman Bob Doughton had to look no further than Sparta for evidence of American's love affair with the automobile. The automobile fueled excitement in Congress for various Parkway proposals. Most ambitious was the Eastern Park-to-Park Highway linking the nation's Capitol, Shenandoah National Park, the Great Smoky Mountains, Mammoth Cave, and Lincoln's and Washington's birthplaces. The only portion to gain traction was a link between Shenandoah and the Great Smokies. In 1934, Virginia representatives suggested two routes for a New Deal project that would become the Blue Ridge Parkway and connect Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the North Carolina-Tennessee border. The northern route bypassed North Carolina, entering Tennessee near Damascus, VA. The southern route followed the Parkway's present path along the Eastern Continental Divide, largely bypassing Tennessee. Tennessee offered a compromise that followed the southern route to Linville, NC, and turned west to connect with the northern route near Unicoi, TN. Nov. 10, 1934, Secretary of State Harold L. Ickes' announcement favored the southern route. Congressman Bob Doughton chaired the influential Ways and Means Committee (19331947) that managed bills affecting taxes. Many credit him for Social Security's passage in the House, 372 to 33, in April 1935. Descendants say Doughton initially opposed Social Security, but bargained with Roosevelt to support its passage in exchange for assurance the Parkway would pass through his district. History is mute on how much he influenced the scenic byway's route, but ground was first broken on the Parkway, Sept. 11, 1935, at Cumberland Knob in Alleghany County, and Doughton Park, a nearby Blue Ridge Parkway recreation area, is named for him. The preservation of Doughton's home as a historic bed and breakfast inn at Laurel Springs, NC, continues his legacy in welcoming travelers to Alleghany County and North Carolina. The 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway was all-but completed in 1967. Some 7.5 miles remained around the steep, fragile Grandfather Mountain environment. A bridge or viaduct, suspended along the mountain face, was designed to protect the delicate environment. The Linn Cove Viaduct, at Mile Post 304.6, was completed September 1987. 19

DINING & CATERING

Dining & Catering... Does the smell of just-made breakfast biscuits coming out of the oven get your mouth watering? Our cooks know biscuits.

• Catering • Delis • Restaurants

Do you linger over coffee, as energized by its smell as much as its taste? At noon, do you prefer the home-cooked goodness of a blue-plate lunch on a redchecked tablecloth? Or are you more a crisp salad and steaming cup of soup kind of a person? Is a club sandwich on crisp toast more your fare? When someone says barbecue, do you prefer eastern style or Lexington? Can you tell by the smell if it is just sweet and tangy enough to suit your tastes? Seafood? Shrimp, fried with a such a delicate batter they are best described as morsels? Or broiled and lightly seasoned? Or a platter with samples from the river and sea?
