Question: On Hilliard Avenue just past the juncture of South French Broad Avenue and Hilliard Avenue there is a building that is currently referred to as the Aston Center. On the Hilliard Avenue side of the building there is stone or cement signage above the doorway that says "French Broad Hospital 1927." What is the story of that hospital? How long did it serve the Asheville community? Was it the only hospital in town at that time? Did they specialize in any services? I'm curious to know what that facility was about.
