Surrounded by antique jewelry, vintage decor and old treasures, Betty Cowles recalls first opening Lexington Park Antiques in downtown Asheville, North Carolina in 1990 with her sister. Over two decades later, Betty Cowles is still running the business with her husband Chester “Gene” Cowles. Lexington Park Antiques is the oldest antique mall in downtown Asheville and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
