      EVENT DETAILS
      History Cafe: WNC Digital History

      In the Spring of 2019, teams of students in Dr. Ellen Holmes Pearson’s Digital History class at UNC-Asheville worked together to create digital history projects that made slices of Western North Carolina history available online. The topics they studied included the U.S. Navy vessels that have borne the name U.S.S. Asheville, the history of Chimney Rock State Park, philanthropist Julian Price’s efforts to revitalize downtown Asheville, and the activities of the Cut the Clearcutting environmental preservation group. At this History Cafe, a few of these students will present their websites and discuss the stories behind their digital projects.
