My 10 year old daughter took this tour with her school group and loved it. She is still pointing out things that she saw for the first time in her own city and we're still talking about local history together.

Sharon's impressive knowledge of the hisory of Asheville added a whole new layer of interest for me about the city.

Many of Asheville's downtown businesses throughout its history were owned by Jews who came to the town for the healthful air and business opportunities.
