Asheville is a mid-sized town (85 000 souls) in western North Carolina at the foot of the mountains which is a popular tourist attraction for several reasons. It has a name of being a place where the hippies hang out. There is a wide offering of restaurants and at night downtown Asheville is almost as lively as a Mediterranean town. Daytime is duller, though. Asheville also sports some older buildings from the beginning of the 20th century which has survived through the years. This is the S&W building that I don't know that much about.
