Thomas Wolfe Memorial

Visit the Thomas Wolfe Memorial

Thomas Wolfe left an indelible mark on American letters and his mother's boardinghouse in Asheville, North Carolina. Now the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, has become one of literature's most famous landmarks. Named "Old Kentucky Home" by a previous owner, Wolfe immortalized the rambling Victorian structure as "Dixieland" in his epic autobiographical novel, Look Homeward, Angel. A classic of American literature, Look Homeward, Angel has never gone out of print since its 1929 publication, keeping interest in Wolfe alive and attracting visitors to the setting for this great novel.
