Memories from Old Kentucky Home: Thomas Wolfe Memorial

When visiting Asheville, North Carolina, there’s so much to see—picturesque scenery, a vibrant arts community, and historic architecture, especially the grand Biltmore estate. But tucked in a corner of downtown is a literary treasure that’s worth a special visit. It’s the boardinghouse that spawned author Thomas Wolfe’s epics about the South, including Look Homeward, Angel.
