The Hottest Highway Point in Buncombe County NC

This spot may just look like another highway to you, but let me talk about it for a minute. This is the intersection of I-26, I-40, and I-240. You can go straight (to the left) on this road and head toward the Enka / Candler end of Buncombe County, you can bear to the right and go through Asheville locally and then toward UNCA and Weaverville if you need, or you could turn off right (about 100 feet back from where I took this photo), and head toward the Oteen, Swannanoa, and Black Mountain area of Buncombe.

Years ago there were two churches (Pentecostal and Baptist) sort of battling for a piece of land right around here. I believe the Pentecostal church was thinking of selling, the Baptist church jumped on it... and then the Pentecostal church changed plans and they ended up building a giant church in on this property. No problem, the Baptist church just built on the many acres they already had.

Back to this spot. It is a key highway connection point and a very major business spot in Buncombe County.
