I lived in Asheville for 15 years b efore moving to Atlanta. My husband and his mother were born there. His grandfather moved there from Lynchburn Virginia and started a law practice during the time of Thomas Wolfe. Recently, I came across photos of the original Battery Park Hotel. Has anyone come across photographs? I'd love to collect copies of these. This is the original Hotel built by Colonel Coxe in the 1800s...not the rebuilt edition by Mr. Grove which was closed in 1972. If anyone is into Asheville history and architecture, I'd love to hear from you.
