Our mission is to conserve Asheville and Buncombe County’s heritage and sense of place through preservation and promotion of the region’s historic resources. 

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

  • Preservation Grants to support preservation, education and designation projects.
  • Preservation Easements and Advocacy to protect endangered properties.
  • Technical Support for owners of historic properties.
  • Hosting the Griffin Awards to recognize 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?
