The new Cashiers-Glenville back-to-back welcome sign was installed today at NC 107 North and Laurel Knob Road.  The sign was produced and financed by the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce with the generous support of the Glenville Community Development Club, Hattler Properties, Hampton Inn & Suites and in-kind support by Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club and manufacturer AGM Sign Company of Sapphire.  Under the direction of AGM's Barry Morris, the sign crew hoisted the more than 500 pound structure in place on Thursday morning with the help of a track hoe.  

"Effective wayfinding signage supports "placemaking" and a memorable visitor experience," explained Stephanie Edwards, executive director of the Cashiers Area Chamber which operates the Jackson County Visitor Center at Cashiers.  This effort is another of the Chamber's ongoing economic and community development activities in support of Cashiers Area businesses, residents and visitors.  

Other Cashiers destination highway signs on US 64 and NC 107 installed by the Chamber have been financed with donations by FireMoss Pottery, Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club, Zoller Hardware, Cashiers Carolina Connection, Global Reclamations, Hampton Inn & Suites and the Jackson County Tourism Development Authority.  The Cashiers and Glenville 4x8' signs, created by Mountainworks Custom Home Design, are supported by 10x10 cedar posts capped with a copper accent and feature a profile of Whiteside Mountains and "Elev. 3,484."  The Glenville sign features a silhouette of Lake Glenville with "Elev. 3,494," highlighting the popular, high elevation tourist destinations in southern Jackson County. More signage is planned for US 64 East in the future.
