Downtown Architectural History Walking Tour in Asheville

Downtown Architectural History Walking Tour in Asheville

See downtown Asheville from a new perspective. Hear stories about desperados and deco architects. Learn how downtown developed and reinvented itself to be the downtown of arts and entertainment it is today.

Buncombe County was officially formed in 1792. The county seat, named "Morristown" in 1793, was established on a plateau where two old Indian trails crossed. In 1797 Morristown was incorporated and renamed "Asheville" after North Carolina Governor Samuel Ashe.

Through the years, most of the buildings in the downtown district have remained unaltered. This results in one of the most impressive, comprehensive collections of Art Deco architecture in the United States.
