We went home again, even if it never felt that way to Thomas Wolfe
2021年10月
We visited on an uncharacteristically cold day in October. The docent gave an excellent interpretive tour of the house. My wife, who is unfamiliar with Wolfe's work, appreciated the context that the docent provided about the Asheville of Wolfe's youth and his mother's ambitions to create a better life for herself.

The drafty old house on a cold day was definitely evocative of Wolfe's reflections on growing up in a rooming-house without a room or a settled place.

The short film in the adjacent book store is also worthwhile.

Fascinating Life story
2021年5月
Although I knew he was a great writer, I had never read any of his books. His life story was remarkable and extremely interesting. This tour of the house where he grew up was full of details about his life and his parents. What an amazing life Thomas lived ! I highly recommend watching the short film in the building near the home first, especially if you are unfamiliar with this great writer

We had a wonderful tour of the house with out guide Tom. The museum was small but open, and the video was available to see also.

A piece of literary history
2021年3月
While I have never read the works of Thomas Wolfe, I'm going to now after visiting the boarding house where he lived with his mother for his formative years. There is also a short film about Wolfe's life and exhibits. It's worth a visit for only $5.

Wolfe Memorial House Gives Insight to His Life
2020年9月
The Thomas Wolfe Memorial is actually a house where he lived as a boy and which his mother ran as a boarding house. There was nothing online to indicate that the house wasn't open for tours during Covid. However, upon arrival we found that both the next door visitor center and house were closed. But I have to say that the trip was still worthwhile because signs were posted about the free cell phone audio tour. The tour described locations both outside and inside of the house and gave basic information about Wolfe's early life and connection to Asheville in his writing. Although we would have loved to have seen the inside, we enjoyed listening to the tour and roaming on the grounds and porch of the house. There were even a few downstairs windows that we could peer into and take photos.

A must for Thomas Wolfe fans
2019年12月
The museum sits next to the boarding house which is the setting for much of Wolfe’s book "Look Homeward, Angel". The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The exhibits are interesting and chronicle his short life in Asheville, Europe and New York. It is sad that we lost Wolfe at such a young age, 38, he was truly a literary groundbreaking genius. He was a peer of Hemingway and Fitzgerald but his short life did not allow his fame to grow as much as these other famous authors.

The boarding house is interesting in itself as a historical building, but knowing the occupants like we do from the book makes it even more interesting and come alive. The city of Asheville has grown up around it so it now sits as its own urban island among modern buildings. But it doesn't take much imagination to see the views of the Blue Ridge mountains from the rocking chairs on the porch.

The site offers free parking to visitors off an alley so don't waste your money on the street parking meters. Also, if you are a local, the Memorial offers Thomas Wolfe monthly book club discussions. Too bad I live 950 miles away, it would be fun to participate.

Quite interesting and educational
2019年12月 • 独自旅游
We were extremely fortunate to have Tom, a retired English professor, as our guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm made our tour quite enjoyable. In fact, we came home and immediately started reading Wolfe’s book, Look Homeward, Angel, because he brought the book to life for us. “The Old Kentucky Home” is quite a quirky building and Tom made our tour fun as we navigated it’s strange layout. Since the home stayed in the family, it is filled with items dating to when Wolfe lived there. The museum runs a 20 minute movie that was also excellently done. The Biltmore is magnificent, the beer scene in Asheville is exciting, but if you are interested in literature, don’t miss this gem.

Great
2019年11月
I visit the Thomas Wolfe House and Museum just about every time I am in Asheville. I always take the house tour too as I really enjoy visiting this house and learning of its history. The beautiful windows are my favorite feature of the house.

Tours are $5 and you can take a tour of this house and learn about Thomas Wolfe. The tour guides all add something to the tour so I am always learning something new.

The house was decorated for the holidays on my last visit and that was a treat to see.
