Asheville- The Way I Remember It- Hester

I have posted a new blog about a man I knew growing up in Asheville. It is entitled " Hester." Anna says guys will like it better than women. It's pretty long, but enjoy it.HESTERGrowing up in Asheville in N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “ My dad was…See More

For a book that I'm writing, I'm trying to track down information (stories, photos, data--anything) about the POW camp located in Henderson County for nearly a year during World War II.I'm especially interested in personal connections to the camp--family members who formed relationships with the prisoners, memories of seeing the men at work, etc.Rumors fly around about prisoners who stayed on in the mountains after the war ended, so I'm hoping to find any evidence to prove that as well.Thanks…See More

Hello Jeremy,

Yes, there is some documented evidence regarding Palmer and the 15th Penn. Cav. staying at Hickory Nut Gap.

Keep in mind, I have not looked at this in several years so some of it is not that fresh in my mind. There are a number of places in the record that indicate Palmer was there. He sent dispatches back to Tennessee that indicated they were sent from "Hickory Nut Gap." I'd have to dig a little to find a couple of those.

When the Civil War Trails people asked me about it I pointed them to the writing of Capt. Weand of the 15th Penn. It's on page 508 of Weand's account of the war called Our last Campaign, He leaves no doubt that they were at Hickory Nut Gap and that the highlands he referes to are the meadows at Berarwallow Mountain. I do not think there is any other highland location that would provide forage for 1,300 horses. If you would like to read the whole thing it is on the Civil War Trails marker on Highway 74 just accross the road from Hickory Nut Gap Farm. Back then it was called Sherrill''s Inn.


Best of luck with your project.
