Montford

The Montford Historic District is Asheville’s oldest and largest with over 600 buildings reflecting a variety of late 19th and early 20th century styles. Montford is a culturally diverse and thriving community, and was the creation of Asheville’s boom times, having its origins as an upper middle class suburb in 1889. Montford’s Riverside Cemetery is well worth a visit for scenic beauty alone; but is also notable as the final resting place for two of America’s most important writers: O. Henry (William Sidney Porter) and Thomas Wolfe. Located just across I-240 from downtown Asheville, a drive through Montford reveals a collection of architecture from the Queen Anne to Georgian Revival styles, with many variations in between. Quite a few of these majestic old homes have been converted to bed & breakfasts, making Montford one of Asheville’s premier destinations for those seeking a historic setting. The best way to see Montford is by car and the historic sites in this section will be presented as a self guided tour.
