Today, Asheville has few reminders of its origins as a tiny village at the confluence of the French Broad and Swannanoa rivers. Tourism reshaped it toward a top visited destination that attracts numerous tourists year round and even F Scott Fitzgerald, the famous writer arrived there in the summer of 1935.
But the most famous personality bred in Asheville is Thomas Wolfe, prominent author who spent there his childhood in a boardinghouse - The Old Kentucky Home that was ran by his mother. Later this place would become a setting for his novel Look Homeward, Angel, where he would doubt his ever return to Asheville, but he actually was back to his hometown 1938.
