Asheville: A Haven through the Years

Asheville has a longstanding prominence as a haven for healing and renewal. As early as 1795, historical records document the town’s widespread reputation as a uniquely therapeutic place. Wellness tourism in the area grew rapidly, especially after the expansion of the WNC Railroad line to Asheville in 1880, which made the town more easily accessible nationwide.

Since then, world-renown medical professionals have been attracted to the town for its reputation as a curative place. Many boarding houses were established for patients suffering from various maladies who sought treatment in the Asheville area because of its reputed healing mountain air.

Individuals seeking top of the line medical care made the pilgrimage to Asheville, many of whom were charmed by the striking beauty of Asheville and went on to move to the area. Edwin W. Grove (of the Grove Park Inn and Grove Arcade) and George Vanderbilt (of the Biltmore Estate) were among these incomers who were originally drawn to the area for its pioneering medical care.
