Asheville's only tour spotlighting women's history is a walking tour of downtown filled with the city's fascinating history and stories of women who helped shape it. It's an inspiring look at Asheville from a different point of view (that can't be found with a google search)! We now offer guided Urban Trail tours as well, planned in conjunction with the Urban Trail Subcommittee. The best possible tour experience is guaranteed!

Brenda is an extremely gifted storyteller! Our tour was full of people of all ages including small children and was about half male. Everyone was completely intrigued by the amazing stories we hardly hear about. I'm an Asheville native and really hadn't heard about any...More

What a wonderful walking tour! I've lived in Asheville 20 years and have seen these fascinating local landmarks but never knew anything about them, or the incredible people behind many of them. The pace of the tour was quite easy-going, and the distance covered would...More

The Herstory Tour was excellent for my class of 18 college students--we all loved it! Brenda Williams' brief and fascinating descriptions of approx. 20 women's contributions to the history of Asheville are wonderful: clear, memorable. The span of time covered--19th c. through contemporary--gives a nice...More
