  • We had a quick visit to the house where Thomas Wolfe grew up and he had a formidable mother. There is a very comprehensive exhibition which is free and give a good account of his life and works. Lovel...  more »
  • Nice tour of the house. The docent was very knowledgeable. Many things in the house are original, including pictures of the family members. 
  • The Asheville symphony sounded like this facility had been built for them as it was crystal clear and wonderful; Ode to Joy it was!

  • I really enjoyed this wonderful museum! David, our guide, was totally knowledgeable about Thomas Wolfe, his works, and the history of the day. He is also very entertaining with a dry sense of humor. The exhibitions and movie, in the visitor center, are very well designed. I'd think that even folks who aren't Wolfe fans will enjoy the tour.
  • I visited this house back in 1979. As a long time fan of his writing it was a great experience. The guide I had was excellent and quite familiar with Wolfe's history. I highly recommend a visit.
  • I LOVE this place so much. I did NOT want to leave this house. We have many tourist attractions here in Asheville (like the Biltmore estate) but this is by far my favorite. It's my dream house, even before I went.
