Mysteries of Asheville

Mysteries abound in Buncombe County, North Carolina where I make my home.

mystery abounds in asheville, nc
The Cherokee have lived in this area
for a very, very long time, certainly longer than the Scots-Irish and other European immigrants.

The Native Americans say that they were NOT the first ones here, however.

One great-grandmother told me that her Mother’s Grandmother told her strange tales of tiny white men with 'almond shaped eyes' living in this area long ago.

The oral tradition coincides with Native American Crowand also early adventurers such as trappers and members of
military survey expeditions who found tiny graves here and there throughout this area.

OK. Tiny white men with 'almond shaped eyes' ...no wonder Mysterious Buncombe County (Greater Asheville Area) is a thriller!  

Seems like everyone prizes this land.

janeAnne, How come I never heard this before? I know that the Vikings made an appearance or two on this continent, but I think they were rather large.
