Happiest wishes for the New Year!
As our first call to action for 2012, we would like to invite you to participate in a brief survey regarding your opinions concerning the significance of the Thomas Wolfe cabin in Oteen.
The survey contains only a few questions and will take less than five minutes to complete. Your responses are confidential and will help us determine the interest in preserving this important historical structure.
NOTE: The survey is limited to the first 100 responses.
As you may know, in the summer of 1937 Thomas Wolfe retreated to a modest cabin in Oteen, East Asheville, to avoid both the fame and infamy his writing had created. His stay at the rustic revival cabin was brief yet productive. The City of Asheville now owns the cabin, which is a local historic landmark, yet the structure has fallen into a severe state of disrepair. The Preservation Society of Asheville & Buncombe County plans to move forward to produce a privately funded structural assessment and feasibility study, which will lay the foundation for the restoration and future use of the site.
