Discover Asheville’s first brick mansion,

now restored as the Asheville History

Center at the Smith-McDowell House

 

 

 

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.
