Did you know?
SWITZERLAND OF AMERICA
The area became known as the "Switzerland of America" and encompassed several fabulous resorts such as the Fairfield Inn and Fairfield Lake, The Sapphire Inn, the Lodge, the Franklin Hotel and the Toxaway Inn. The resorts could not have been developed if Southern Railway had not built a rail system from Asheville, which, incidentally, was the steepest railroad system in the United States.
