Motoring through the Mountains - 1930s: Wilmot
Altitude: 1,880 feet
The community of Wilmot was mentioned in the Federal Writer’s Project’s book, North Carolina: A Guide to the Old North State (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1939). The guide commented that, “At the end of a little valley just past WILMOT, . . . (1,865 alt., 250 pop.), is the only view of the Smokies from this route east of Bryson City. Clingmans Dome (R) is barely distinguishable from the other peaks.”
