HISTORY OF ASHEVILLE...

Ah, the Paris of the South...
Asheville, NC, is the official seat of Buncombe County and the unofficial capital of Western North Carolina (WNC

It is a designated All-American City (1997). Above all, Asheville is known for its sense of community, eclecticism and free spirits. Click Here>
