         CONGRATULATING THE TOWN OF NEWLAND ON THEIR CENTENNIAL

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. MARK MEADOWS

                           of north carolina

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 25, 2013

  Mr. MEADOWS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the centennial of 
Newland, the highest county seat in the Eastern United States, nestled 
along the border of Western North Carolina.
   In 1911, Newland was named after North Carolina Lieutenant Governor 
William C. Newland, and simultaneously became the county seat for Avery 
County.
   By March 1913, small businesses were growing and the town began to 
quickly develop commercially and residentially.
   The town of Newland continues to be an important representative of 
the small-town family values and mountain culture so important to all 
of us in the western part of the state.
   Mr. Speaker, the town of Newland is a beacon for American small 
business and the free enterprise system. America is a country that 
rewards earned success, and Newland is an example of that inspiration.
   Therefore, I rise today as a Representative for the 11th District of 
North Carolina to congratulate the town of Newland for its overall 
steadfastness and perseverance displayed by its citizens.

                          ____________________
