Description
Architect: Douglas Ellington
Cost of construction in 1928: $750,000

Built as a apart of Asheville's "Program of Progress" in the 1920's, to keep up with speculative construction in the city. This building is the most well known skyscraper in Asheville. City Hall features murals by artist Clifford Adams of New York. They depict the story of early white settlers and native americans. The Tower also features a set of Deagan chimes, installed in 1932 as a memorial to Buncombe County residents who lost their lives in World War I.
