Site in Asheville – Drhumor building

On my walking around yesterday, we passed this building. I was amused by the name….Dr. Humor. Since my brother is Dr. Tastegood, I thought this might be his new name.

But, my research shows that it is actually more than that.

From Virtual Tourist:

The Drhumor Building (pronounced “drummer”) was built in 1895 and is the oldest commercial building still standing in Asheville downtown. In this site Elizabeth Blackwell – first American woman doctor – began her studies of medicine in 1845. Well, that building of doctor’s practice didn’t survive and was replaced by the Drhumor Building

Who knew?
