Asheville Insider Tip: The Urban Trail Offers a Free History Tour of Asheville.
The Asheville Urban Trail
has often been called Asheville's "museum without walls." The trail consists of thirty stations of bronze sculpture around downtown and each station has a plaque illuminating some of the very interesting history of downtown's development and the various notable people who once lived here.
Mostly local artists helped to create the whimsical bronze sculptures and other art works that are found at each station. The tour is a 1.7 mile walk that begins and ends at Pack Place and takes about two hours to complete in its entirety.
