Description

This item is a map of Watauga County, NC, circa 1918 highlighting the areas relevant to a lumber operation by William S. Whiting and the Boone Fork Lumber Company in Shulls Mill, NC. On the map, a barbed red line through the county likely indicates Whiting's railroads. Some areas have "BFLC" written on them, likely for "Boone Fork Lumber Company." Boone, Meat Camp, Deep Gap, and Shulls Mill are noted by white circles. The top of the map reads, "Map Courtesy of Joseph Quinn." For more information about William S. Whiting and his lumber operations, see Series 7 of the Lowery-Whiting Collection.
