1880-1930 was Asheville’s period of great growth. It had a population of 2600 in 1880, and 50,000 by 1930. Montford is “the neighborhood that permanently expresses the diversity and vitality of the era. . . Montford alone communicates Asheville’s residential life of the first boom era.”


The sprawling homogeneous neighborhood of about 300 acres retains over 600 structures representing a rich diversity of architectural styles and values, most contructed between 1890 and 1920, during Asheville’s emergence as the greatest city of the Southern Appalachians.
