Long Description:
In 1926 Asheville and Buncombe County officials considered erecting matching government buildings on the Court Plaza. The city chose Douglas Ellington's Beaux-Arts design with its Art Deco embellishments. The county however rejected Ellington's plan and built a more traditional structure by Milburn, Heister and Company. Both were dedicated in 1928.

This granite replica is what Ellington's buildings would have looked like had they been built. It is located on the Court Plaza.
