Event Description

The boom of the 1920s cemented Asheville as a tourist destination, but also laid the infrastructure to support an established population for years to come. New buildings, modern amenities, establishment of parks, and the increased accessibility brought by road improvement all made Asheville what it is today. 

The WNC Historical Association’s History Center in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute will present a slide lecture and book signing by author Amy C. Ridenour for her new book Historic Inns of Asheville.  This book is part of the series Images of America published by Arcadia Publishing and will be released on September 30, 2013.  The lecture will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2013, at 2:00 pm in the Manheimer Lecture Room located in the Reuter Center at the University of North Carolina Asheville.  A book signing will follow the presentation and Ms. Ridenour's book will be available for purchase.

Ms. Ridenour started exploring Asheville history through volunteer work with the Western North Carolina Historical Association and the Asheville History Center.  She has an MFA in writing and is currently a staff member at the University of North Carolina, Asheville.  The lecture is open to the public.  Reservations are not required but may be made by emailing smh@wnchistory or by calling 828-253-9231.  A donation of $5.00 per person is suggested.  Members of WNC Historical Association and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute may attend free of charge.
