9781609491079: Asheville's Historic Architecture (Landmarks)

Asheville, known for its architectural diversity and intriguing Art Deco style, has been fortunate in attracting brilliant architects who, with imaginative foresight and design expertise, have created lasting testaments in brick and stone. Local architectural enthusiast Richard Hansley recounts the history behind dozens of Asheville’s most prominent buildings and historical neighborhoods in Asheville’s Historic Architecture. Discover how Douglas Ellington, Richard Sharp Smith, James Vester Miller and Tony Lord influenced this busy metropolis, as landmarks like the Jackson Building, the Grove Park Inn and the Art Deco City Building were constructed along the city’s thriving streets. These buildings have stood the test of time and remain as breathtaking in concept and appearance today as when first completed.

About the Author:

Richard Hansley, a native of Lancaster, Ohio, moved to Asheville in the 1960s. His teaching career started at Asheville High School, where he taught architectural and mechanical drafting. It was there that a strong interest in the diversity of Asheville’s magnificent architecture developed. That interest has extended to the North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement at the University of North Carolina–Asheville, where he now teaches a yearly class on the architectural history of Asheville. Mr. Hansley obtained graduate and undergraduate degrees from Western Carolina University.
