Late in the 19th century, after the first steam train brought the outside world into Asheville, a great period of expansion began for the city. The greatest boom period came during the 1920s with the construction of the Grove Arcade, City Hall, the Flat Iron Building, the S&W Cafeteria building and many other fine examples of Art Deco. When the stock market crash took place in 1929, Asheville had the highest debt per capita in the United States, and while the burden of this debt was crushing for many decades, it saved Asheville's historic treasures from destruction. There simply wasn't enough money to tear the buildings down and put less interesting substitutes in their place. During the last decade of the 20th century, Asheville's downtown came surging back to life, and today, no matter what the time of day or night, you'll find plenty of people and activity. One restaurant doesn't even open for dinner until 10 p.m. on weekends (it closes at 4 a.m.). The sidewalks most definitely don't roll up in Asheville after dark.
