The city is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a region known for its natural beauty.

The county of Buncombe was officially formed in 1792. Its county seat, initially named “Morristown” in 1793, was established on a plateau where two old Indian trails crossed. The following year, Morristown was incorporated and renamed “Asheville” after North Carolina Governor Samuel Ashe.

Today, Asheville serves as the regional hub for business, health and human services, the arts, shopping, dining and other community amenities for citizens and visitors. As of 2005, the Census Bureau estimates that Asheville's population is 72,231.

The city is, perhaps, best known for the lavish Biltmore Estate, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. Other notable architecture in Asheville includes its Art Deco city hall and other unique buildings in the downtown area. The Montford neighborhood and other central areas are considered historic districts and include Victorian houses. The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway runs through the Asheville area and the grounds of the Biltmore Estate. Biltmore Village is a section of the city adjacent to the estate, where workers stayed during its construction. It is currently home to small trendy shops.

Notable celebrities who have called Ashville, North Carolina home include entertainers Harry Anderson, Roberta Flack, Andie MacDowell, authors F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe, race car drivers Steve Leicht, Robert Pressley, UNC basketball coaching legend Roy Williams, and entrepreneurs Robert Moog and George Washington Vanderbilt III.
