PREFACE 

CANTON, N. C. 

PREFACE 

Canton is located in the Western part of North Carolina in the 
heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, and in the East Central sec- 
tion of Haywood County on Highway U, S. 19 at Junction of State 
Highway 284, going to Pisgah and the Pink Beds. 

The city is protected from extreme temperature in winter and 
summer by the nearby mountain peaks that rise thousands of feet 
in height. It enjoys a year round climate that is unexcelled any- 
where. The difference between the mean July temperature and 
that of January is only 33.5 degrees, while the difference between 
the annual mean temperature and that of July is only 17 1 degrees. 
Canton is also protected from the storms of the Middle Western 
Plains. The summer nights are cooled by the mountain breezes 
and the temperature frequently ranges as low as 20 degrees lower 
than that of midday. 

The average date last killing frost in spring is April 15th; 
average date first killing frost in fall is October 20th. 

GOVERNMENT 

The Town of Canton has been under the Commission form of 
Government since its incorporation. There is a Mayor and three 
members of the Board of Commissioners. An efficient police 
force is maintained, and the town is protected from fire by a 
volunteer department. 

The Town of Canton was first known as Pigeon Ford, until 
1891, when it was incorporated as "Pigeon River," and in 1905 
charter was amended to "Town of Canton." 

EDUCATION AND RELIGION 

The Town of Canton has six substantially built schools, five 
graded and one High School, all for white, and one colored school, 
(all having the highest state rating), and a number of churches 
representing the following denominations: Methodist, Baptist, 
Presbyterian, Episcopal, and Holiness. These are also three 
churches for colored. 

Recreational and vocational training can be obtained through 
the Champion Y. M. C. A. There is a Branch of Columbia Univer- 
sity located near Canton known as the New College Community. 

RECREATIONAL 

Within a radius of a few miles is located Lake Junaluska, the 
vacation and conference center of the South for Southern Metho- 
dists, and Lake Logan, where large acreage is given over to hunt- 
v** ing and fishing, general camping and outings. Camp Hope, which 
V has been operated by the Champion Y. M. C. A. for .several years, 
p- and which is located within a few miles of Canton, is now being 
p • reconstructed with an approximate expenditure of $8,000 to 
-f- $10,000, which when completed will undoubtedly be the best camp 
'{J in this section of the .state and will be under the supervision of the

Champion Y. M. C. A., which has the second largest membership 
in the state. 

INDUSTRY 
Canton is essentially the "Home of Industry." It has within 
its boundaries one of the largest pulp and paper plants in the 
world, owned and operated by the Champion Paper & Fibre Com- 
pany. The daily output of this plant is over three hundred tons 
of pulp, paper and board. In addition the plant also produces 
tanning extracts, caustic soda, turpentine, So-Hi, and adhesives. 
Mineral resources are rich and varied. Chief among these is 
Kaolin, Feldspar. Gold, silver and copper ores are found in the 
county. A large supply of lumber for industrial uses is available 
from the .surrounding forests and within easy reach of Canton. 

FARMING AND MARKETING 

The country surrounding Canton has many excellent farms and 
orchards, and a large number of dairies, which rate very high. 
A ready market is available for all farm and dairy products in 
this section. 

TRADE AND COMMERCE 

Canton is the trading center of approximately 10,000 people 
living in Haywood and adjoining counties. The county population 
is 28,273, of which 27,503 is white and 695 negro. The labor 
supply of Canton is high class workers, intelligent, tractable, 
readily trained, and are 98 per cent native. 

WATER AND TRANSPORTATION 

The water supply of Canton is derived by gravity from moun- 
tain springs and streams. This water is of the finest quality, 
and is unlimited and dependable. However, for emergencies a new 
pressure and pump filter plant is now being completed at an ap- 
proximate cost of $100,000, which is capable of furnishing a daily 
output of two million gallons of water daily. This water shows 
an analysis of approximately 100 percent pure. 

Canton is served by the Southern Railway, which has been here 
since about 1887. There are four passenger trains daily through 
Canton, and a complete system of paved highways, assuring up-to- 
date bus and freight transportation. 

CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS 

Canton has a number of civic and fraternal organizations, in- 
cluding the Chamber of Commerce, the Civitan Club, Y's Mens 
Club, Y. M. C. A., The American Legion, the American Legion 
Auxiliary, The Senior Woman's Club, The Junior Woman's Club, 
The American Red Cross, the Masons, Juniors, Dokies, and Odd 
Fellows, 30th Signal Company of the National Guards. 

Hydro- electric power for the use of Canton and its industries 
is supplied by the Carolina Power & Light Company. This com- 
pany is a unit in one of the great Southern "super-power" systems, 
its lines being inter-connected with those of other large producers 
of hydro-electric power. They have located at Canton one of their

ADVERTISERS' SPECIAL DIRECTORY 



You May Read — 



The doilies which carry a few items of interest in your 
local community — or you may listen over the radio 
for news and advertising. 

But The Newspaper That's Yours 

. . . and belongs to YOU is the paper printed in your own community. In 
it are recorded the big and little events in the lives of individuals and of the 
community — YOUR COMMUNITY and about YOUR FRIENDS. It represents 
the sum total of life as you live it.
