American Novelist Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938)

Considered by many to be one of the giants of 20th-century American literature, Thomas Wolfe immortalized his childhood home in his epic autobiographical novel, Look Homeward, Angel. Wolfe's colorful portrayal of his family, his hometown of "Altamont" Asheville, North Carolina, and "Dixieland" the Old Kentucky Home boardinghouse, earned the Victorian period house a place as one of American literature's most famous landmarks.
