Here's a cool literary factoid shared by the folks over at the Hendersonville Visitor Center. The iconic angel from Thomas Wolfe's novel "Look Homeward, Angel" was moved from Asheville to Hendersonville years ago, and it's on currently on display for visitors. More details below the photo.It's time for the first #FridayFacts of 2019! You may be familiar with Thomas Wolfe, an American novelist of the 20th century, well known for both his novels, short stories and plays, and influence on countless other American authors. Wolfe's first and best-known novel, "Look Homeward, Angel," was largely thought of to be autobiographical, and set in a fictional version of Asheville, NC. The book often references an angel statue carved from Italian marble, describing how it looked in great detail, and the title itself referenced an actual statue that sat atop Wolfe's father's stone cutting shop, near his childhood home (the family home in Asheville is now a National Historic Site, and you can visit it this time of year on Tuesdays-Saturdays). Though many versions of the statue were created, historians agree that the original angel statue that inspired Wolfe was sold to the Johnson Family, and moved from the home in Asheville to the Johnson family's grave site, at Oakdale Cemetery, on Rt 64 in Hendersonville. Whether you're a history fan, an American literature fan or a fan of sculpture, the Wolfe Angel is a beautiful sight to behold, and is easily accessible and open all the time.
