Breweries in Asheville, NC ... but wait, there's more, this list from July, 2015 has continued to grow! AVL currently has 27 breweries and 8 more likely coming in the near future (2017?), with an overall local total of about 60 breweries, adding in the close-in surrounding counties and WNC area ... Truly a Beer City USA and region for the eastern half of the country! (Also: add 2 more great Hard-Cider producers).
This is a link to an idea for a project students could do about natural resources. This teacher had groups create a map of North Carolina's natural resources. She assigned a small object to represent each resource and the student had to glue the object onto the state where it is naturally found. I could easily modify this for Texas.
Five centuries of maps come together in the 3,200-item North Carolina Maps, which officially debuted June 30, 2010. A collaborative project of the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library, the North Carolina State Archives, and the Outer Banks History Center in Manteo, the collection is the result of a three-year project to identify and scan nearly every original map of the state published from 1584 to 1923.
