About The State of Buncombe

We work in partnership with @AvlHistory on Twitter and Instagram to provide the public with digestible and enjoyable information about the history and culture of Asheville western North Carolina. We most frequently post about things that happened on this day in history and point you toward more enriching local resources like Pack Library, the Western Regional Archives, digital humanities projects, and local museums. Other times we post press releases, book reviews, and other analytical writing.

Tune in for all kinds of insightful, interesting, and sometimes just plain funny history & culture things.
