Did you know that Asheville NC was originally named Morristown NC?

Asheville NC was renamed after Samuel Ashe governor of NC he was the ninth governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina from 1795 to 1798.

He is known to have owned slaves and one such slave Amar, was a West African woman who was enslaved and brought to America in 1735 aboard a ship called The Doddington. Legendary tennis player Arthur Ashe is a direct descendant of Samuel Ashe's slave Amar.

Do you think with Sheville turned QUEER BLUE. Should we now demand asheville change its name to SHEVILLE instead for inclusivity? :oops:

However then when Sheville became WOKE!

The all female Asheville City Council passed a resolution last June that created a task force to determine what to do with the Vance Monument. Its members ultimately voted to take it down.


Another one bites the dust. :rolleyes:

Good cops are getting jobs elsewhere like Hendersonville NC.

Better at least have your AR with you in your ride, when you visit the Queen city .

The Queers have taken over Asheville once rated #1 place to retire. :oops:


A city resident said:

Asheville is about as liberal as a city can get, which is even more impressive considering it's technically located in the south where things can be a bit more conservative.

A strong (and ever growing) LGBT community and lots of artists shape the community in lovely ways and even with all the gentrification and development, there's still something really special about this town.

Occasionally you'll get an idiot or teenager driving around flying their confederate flag off the back of their unnecessarily large truck, but they don't represent the city limits vibe by any means.
