This was a nice landmark in the middle of town, it makes finding your way around pretty easy. Of course there was some kind of protest going on in front of it, but once everyone cleared out, it was quite nice and I enjoyed it.

A tall structure as a monument to a man who owes part of his success to the slaves he owned but no credit is given to them.

Nothing really special about it. It is in the middle of town and its tall and old. We were not really going to it, we happened to walk past it on our way to the general store. There are some little statues around it and some history about it, I didnt read it though.

My wife and I had our first date walking the square near the monument. Now while the monument itself is nothing to really look at the surrounding buildings and fountains are beautiful. We even had or ceremony in a small grassy section near the monument where we also had our first kiss. We still go there every time we are in town.

The Vance monument located in downtown Asheville is impressive with its towering height. Zeb Vance's leadership helped the people of NC survive after the Civil War ended. His role as govenor and then in the senate helped NC continue to thrive and flourish. A little trivia, Zeb Vance was a 33rd degree Freemason and there are 33 rows in this monument. Nice landmark to add to the list of things to see while walking around downtown Asheville!
