Lined by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the land around Asheville was once a part of the Cherokee Nation. In 1765 Colonel Samuel Davidson and his family settled in the Swannanoa Valley, paving the way to what became the city of Asheville.
In 1797 Asheville served as an outpost catering to travelers such as Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett. Asheville primarily served as a crossroads of Indian Trails on a plateau surrounded by mountains and rivers on all sides.
In 1880 the railroad arrived, transforming Ashville into a therapeutic health center and resort. People flocked to Asheville looking for a beautiful mountain escape escalating the population in a few years. The city drew visionaries, poets, and explorers, which is a tradition that continues today.
Asheville is home to the Biltmore Estate, America’s largest home. Built in 1895 by George W. Vanderbilt, the house has 35 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and has 65 fireplaces. The estate sits on a sprawling 8,000 acres with plush gardens and fountains.
In 1889 Asheville operated one of the nation’s first electric street railways that served to transport supplies used to build the Biltmore Estate. Today it’s known as Approach Road that guides guests to the Biltmore Estate.
There are tunnels underground in Ashville. Although some believe they were an abandoned project for a subway, they were more likely to smuggle alcohol during the prohibition.
