Inscription. The Urban Trail, a self-guided walk through historic downtown, begins here at the heart of the city, the public square. Philanthropist George Willis Pack, for whom the square was named in 1903, gave generously to the entire community. So too, the Urban Trail honors all of Asheville's people, past and present.

Placed in memory of Oliver Davis Revell, Pack Square Developer
 
Erected by Asheville Urban Trail.
