Only in Asheville:
An Eclectic History
Other Editions of This Title:
A unique blend of visionaries, risk takers and creative souls lends energy to Asheville's historic streets. Author Marla Milling traces the people and places that make her hometown a truly unique city.
Today, bohemian street performers, funky shops, exquisite art galleries, restaurants and craft breweries blend in among some of the most revered vintage architecture in the country. Discover quirky figures like a "nun" named Sister Bad Habit, who entertains passengers on the LaZoom bus; the "Man in White" living statue; and Asheville's Village Witch. Be inspired by innovative dreamers such as Julian Price, who invested millions in the once-desolate downtown Asheville, giving money to an eclectic mix of restaurateurs and shop owners.
