Tourism was a large part of Asheville's economy at the turn of the century, but it soon gave way to manufacturing and other businesses operating in the western part of the state. Manufacturing still contributes about $312 million to the economy, but tourism is making a comeback. The Asheville Chamber of Commerce projects tourism revenues of $245 million in 1985 and that tourism will become the city's number one industry in the next three or four years.
