Stevens Mill Power Bought by the West Asheville SyndicateOn Saturday last E.G. Carrier, for his syndicate, purchased of S. Norman Stevens, the Stevens water power, not far from the present dam of the West Asheville Improvement Company. The price paid was $3,000. This is a most important deal. With this additional power the company will be able, as J.D. Carrier says, “to put electric railways and electric lights over the whole of Buncombe County.” The company is soon to begin putting in a 25-foot stone dam on its new purchase.Work is also soon to begin on the company’s new line from the passenger depot to the heart of the city.
