The family of Osie W. Bacoate, teacher and a resident of the West End/Clingman Avenue Neighborhood, was recognized during the 14 Riverside Drive grand opening. The creek that flows under the building has been named Bacoate Creek, in her honor.

She was also the mother of Matthew Bacoate Jr., civil rights activist and proprietor of the largest African American owned business in the Asheville’s history, AFRAM, formerly housed in what is now WEDGE Studios.



Steph Monson Dahl, Strategic Development Office Director for the City of Asheville, talks about the amenities that the City’s new 14 Riverside Drive Arts and Culture Center offers to the community. This video was taken July 21, 2017, during the grand opening celebration.
