Asheville, NC is the largest city in the western part of the state. It was voted the #1 place to live in the “America’s Top 100 Places to Live” in 2007. It’s a growing city in Buncombe County and is becoming a popular place to visit. With plenty of outdoor activities (including hiking) and a beautiful picturesque town, Asheville has become a sought after cabin destination around the country.

History

In it’s earlier years Asheville, NC attracted frontiersmen such as Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone. This city was merely a pass-through on the way to other larger cities. Once the pioneers started to realize how beautiful the scenery and surroundings were permanent residents began to establish their homes. This city began to attract wealthy families who decided to build their large estates and many are still there today.

One of the biggest influences to Asheville was a man named George W. Vanderbilt. He visited Asheville in the 1800’s and decided to buy 120,000 acres of land to build an estate on. With help from his landscape artist, Frederick Law Olmsted, and an architect, Richard Morris Hunt, Vanderbilt was able to build his mansion, Biltmore Estate. This estate is still standing and is larger than many of the mansions from modern times.

Once the railroad was built going through Asheville the city started to attract more people. In 1880 Asheville became a resort and health center and was flocked to by those wanting to retreat to the mountains. As of 1890 the population of people residing in Asheville had almost reached 30,000.

When Black Monday occurred the economy suffered greatly. While other towns were able to invest in businesses and other things to try to stimulate their economy Asheville was unable to afford the “renewal projects”. Asheville made the commitment to repay it’s debts and was able to avoid many of it’s beautiful buildings being demolished. Since those buildings were spared and are still standing the area is still picturesque of what the city looked like in it’s earlier years.

Blue Ridge National Heritage Area

In November 2003 the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area was established by President Bush and members of Congress. They wanted to preserve the beauty of the area for future generations to enjoy. There are 25 counties included in the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area that are protected.

The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area is an area of the Blue Ridge Mountains which are the some of the oldest mountains on earth. It has very unique features within it’s borders. This protected area claims the highest mountain, deepest gorge, oldest river, highest waterfall, and is among 2 of the most visited national parks (Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains). There is also more wildlife and plant life in the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area than all of Europe combined.

The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area was established to protect the area for future generations to enjoy and was a successful attempt to improve the economy. Much of the area was preserved and is enjoyed by many visitors and those who live near. Also within the border of the Heritage Area is a region that is home to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. It was the birthplace for the Cherokee Indian nation and the heritage is being protected.
