ASHEVILLE is a small city in the Great Smoky Mountains. In the 1920's the booming town danced to the tune of flocking tourists and new growth.

Architects brought Art Nouveau, Art Deco and other stylish movements. Back in those days, taking risks generally won the day, and the post-war twenties soared with creativity.

THE JACKSON BUILDING rises 13 stories high and was North Carolina's highest building when it was finished in 1924.In its early days, the beam of a searchlight on its roof could be seen for thirty miles. And, because of its height, an inspector used the building's top terrace to monitor smoke from furnaces around town.
