Our mission is to sustain the heritage and sense of place that is Asheville and Buncombe County through preservation and promotion of the unique historic resources of the region.

We are working to keep Asheville a unique and desirable city by retaining the character of our community in four key ways:

  • Preservation Easements and Advocacy to protect endangered properties.
  • Technical Support for owners of historic properties.
  • Hosting the Griffin Awards to recognized projects that have utilized a preservation ethic.
  • Preservation Education Programs to inform the community about our shared history.

Our Home | Our History | Our Future

Our efforts are supported by people of Asheville & Buncombe County who value the proud legacy of our uniquely beautiful area. How will you help us preserve our home for future generations?
