Western North Carolina buildings

WNC is full of great character and history. There is an abundance of subjects to be found, and the buildings that line downtown streets have always been of interest to me. These photographs were made in Asheville as well as Marshall, NC. The downtown of Marshall is lined with historic buildings which link the town to the past. Asheville is still home to a number of Art Deco buildings and other early 20th Century architecture. Of course, development can lead to the demolition of older structures and Asheville has been in a development boon for decades, so many buildings are lost to "progress". Occasionally a building is spared destruction and instead revitalized, which would be nice to see more of.
