Only in Asheville: An Eclectic History

My first book, Only in Asheville: An Eclectic History debuted June 8, 2015, published by The History Press.

A unique blend of visionaries, risk takers and creative souls lends energy to Asheville’s historic streets. Today, bohemian street performers, funky shops, exquisite art galleries, restaurants and craft breweries blend in among some of the most revered vintage architecture in the country.

Discover quirky figures like a “nun” named Sister Bad Habit, who entertains passengers on the LaZoom bus; the Man in White living statue; and Asheville’sVillage Witch. Be inspired by innovative dreamers such as Julian Price, who invested millions in the once-desolate downtown Asheville, giving money to an eclectic mix of restaurateurs and shop owners.

Author Marla Milling traces the people and places that make her hometown a truly unique city.
