Smith - Mc Dowell House Museum - Review

The Smith - Mc Dowell House is city’s oldest surviving house and is also the first. It was bought by Sarah Smith McDowell after the death of her parents and you can notice the distinctive difference in architectural styles. James Smith McDowell was the Mayor during the civil War and a friend of Vanderbilts, for whom the mansion was built. The house has a very Federal character to it with thick walls, large fanlights, corbelled cornices that feature dentils. It also has a lot of Greek and neo classical touch. Today it stands in the campus grounds of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and it documents the change in the lifestyles of the people from late 19th and 20th century.

Built by one of antebellum North Carolina’s most influential citizens, this National Register property was once the home of mayors, a Confederate Major, and friends of the Vanderbilts at nearby Biltmore Estate (just three miles away).
