A memorial in Pack Square Park honoring Samuel Ashe, for whom Asheville was named, was rededicated this morning by the Edward Buncombe Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. A North Carolina governor, Ashe became Asheville’s namesake in 1797. The ceremony featured the DAR color guard, complete with piccolo and snare accompaniment, and a speech by Mayor Terry Bellamy, who remarked that she was glad not to be mayor of “Morristown,” the name by which Asheville was previously known.
