Craggy Gardens, on the Blue Ridge Parkway. 1961

Building dates from early 1930's. Writers Thomas Wolfe, O. Henry, both buried in Asheville, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, a common visitor of Asheville, could frequently be found in the newsroom. The building is a relatively plain moderne building, a three-story asymmetrical gray structure. The decoration comes from the simple raised bands near the roof-line, top and bottom of the windows and to the sides of the name above the entrance. Glass blocks surround all windows.

David Milliard Junior High, at the corner of Oak Street and College Ave (near where the SECU building is now). This was Asheville High School from 1916 until 1928, when the current Asheville High School building was completed. Converted into David Milliard Jr High in 1928, and from 1934-40, also housed Asheville-Biltmore College, which would later become AB-Tech.

What does North Carolina mean? Carolina is taken from the Latin word for Charles (Carolus), honoring King Charles I of England (who made the original land grant in 1629). North Carolina was formed in 1729 when the Carolina colony was divided in two. North Carolina became the 12th state in November of 1789.
