THE WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION PRESENTS:
Discover the Smith-McDowell House (circa 1840):
Asheville’s first brick mansion and home of the Western North Carolina Historical Association.
Built by one of antebellum North Carolina's most influential citizens, the Smith-McDowell House was once the home of mayors, a Civil War major and friends of the Vanderbilts. Rescued from destruction, Asheville's oldest surviving dwelling is now a National Register property and a window into how life was lived here in the 19th century. [learn more]
