|"View from the historic Grove Park Inn"|
This is quite an old hotel and is "THE" place to stay! For the history, click HERE. Most of these photos were taken from the trolley. We had a wonderful tour of the city.
|"First Baptist Church"|
I think this is a Baptist Church - I always thought they were a little plainer - but this one is certainly a beauty.
|"A Slice of Heaven!"|
A "Slice of Heaven" that will not be mine. I did show it to my husband, though. And this really wasn't the "bell of the ball" ... our neighbors would have been:
|"Every man's home is his Castle"|
I can't remember the story behind the above house, but I do know the tree on the right hand side was painted by a lady (who I think died in a fire). The painting of the tree now hangs, I believe, in the Smithsonian.
I was on the wrong side of the trolley to get a photo of this building, but I think this is kind of neat.
|"Sitting upon History"|
This is the oldest continuous running Woolworth Counter and we certainly enjoyed the Ice Cream Soda! I had NEVER had one before and it will NOT be my last!
|"They do make them like they used to!"|
And one last stop...
I also purchased a blog friend's mystery books (Vickie Lane) at the BEST independent book store = Malaprops.
There is way too much to see in Asheville, NC and the surrounding area in just two days. We will be back.
