This 28-room Victorian boardinghouse is novelist Thomas Wolfe's boyhood home and the setting for his 1929 classic, Look Homeward, Angel. The museum and exhibits trace the life and writings of this powerful writer, and the house looks as it did in the early twentieth century. Tours of the historic house are offered hourly. Tours and guides are available to Riverside Cemetery Asheville's oldest historic cemetery and gravesite of Thomas Wolfe and O. Henry. Special events throughout the year commemorate Wolfe's literary legacy at the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources State Historic Site.
