From the Charleston Mercury
April 17, 1861
The Blue Ridge Railroad
   The bridge over Seneca river, at Cherry's, is sufficiently advanced to completion to allow the iron to be laid down and the cars to pass over. This difficulty surmounted, the completion of the road to Walhalla will soon be effected. Suggestions have been made that the auspicious event should be celebrated by the people of the District. What shall be the response? The completion of the road to Walhalla cannot fail to have a most happy effect on that section of the District, and we believe to the whole surrounding country for many miles.
