|"The Toxaway Company owns several thousand acres of land in southwestern
North Carolina and, besides other enterprises, operates several summer hotels.
In 1902 the company found that the hotels at Brevard, Sapphire and Fairfield
were not able to take care of the summer tourists and it was decided to build a
new hotel on the shore of a new lake to be called Lake Toxaway."
