I was always told that "the summit" just west of town was the highest
point on the N&W, about 2750 ft.

Until the Abingdon Branch was abandoned in the 70's, White Top was the
highest point on the N&W
at 3,523 feet, although some data indicates it was 3,577 feet. It
outranked Balsam, NC on
Southern's Murphy Branch. Harry Bundy
