Community Engagement Survey: African American Heritage Trail in Asheville
The Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority (BCTDA) is beginning the process of developing a physical and virtual African American Heritage Trail. Part of the proposed project includes a walking trail through downtown Asheville with approximately 19 undetermined stops that use themes to present stories from historic African American communities. These themes might include community life, entrepreneurship, faith, entertainment, and education.
The stories will inform the location of each trail marker and the trail's path through downtown Asheville. The trail's markers will be installed and maintained in perpetuity by the BCTDA as part of its Wayfinding Signage Program.
This survey is part of the community engagement process meant to inform the development of the trail’s stories, route, markers, and a corresponding website. Please see the project webpage at
for more information.
