The boarding house where he grew up is the featured exhibit at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, and it's very interesting. I watched their 22 minute video on Wolfe's life and work first and I'm glad I did, because the tour guide's commentary (which was excellent) helped provide color and perspective on the basic story which at that point was fresh in my mind. The visitor center isn't much without the video and the tour, so if you go make sure you make time for both of those. Well worth doing.
