Old Kentucky Home


Asheville native Thomas Wolfe achieved international fame with the publication of his first full-length novel, Look Homeward, Angel, in 1929. Many of the incidents in the book took place in his mother's boardinghouse, "Old Kentucky Home," which he called "Dixieland." A large man, both in stature and in accomplishment, Wolfe left big shoes to fill.Placed by the Four Seasons Garden Club
