The Preservation Society of Asheville & Buncombe County
Through preserving and promoting the unique historic resources of our region, we work to sustain the heritage and the sense of place that is Asheville and Buncombe County.
Join us in preserving Asheville’s legacy for future generations
It Started With Downtown
The Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County (PSABC) was formed in 1976, with interest in preservation sparked by observance of the U. S. Bicentennial, and in response to threats to local buildings and sites posed by neglect, insensitive alteration, and large-scale transportation projects.

Faraway in Asheville
Built in 1925, and known as Faraway, this home boast stunning architectural details and long range mountain views. Currently in dilapidated condition, the structure and property need love and dedication to be restored to their former glory. With your help, we hope to one day soon announce that Faraway is permanently protected!
Every preservation easement marks the permanent protection of history that might otherwise be lost. PSABC manages these easements and the reporting that goes along with that responsibility in perpetuity, offering technical support to the owners and ensuring the historic integrity of these special places.
