The 1st US 19 Business was born in 1960 as a renumbering of US 19-A. It used Haywood Ave through W. Asheville, then Clingman Ave to Patton Ave which was then-US 19.
The 1961 Official Map suggests US 19 Business was extended over Patton into downtown Asheville to replace mainline US 19 which had been moved onto the East-West Expressway. This would place 19 Business on one-way splits: NB used Patton to Market north to Woodfin west to Broadway north. SB used Broadway south to College west to Patton.
In 1962, US 19 Business was rerouted to follow Hanover St (now I-240) north from Haywood back to mainline US 19. The old route into Asheville proper became SR 3548.
The 2nd US 19 Business was born about 1966 when US 19 was placed on a new bypass west of Weaverville.
The 3rd US 19 Business appeared about 1979 as a renumbering of mainline US 19-129 which was placed on a new bypass to the west.
