Grace Episcopal Church

Grace Episcopal Church, built in 1905, is located on a prominent hilltop on Merrimon Avenue in Asheville, NC. This distinctive stone church was designed by Richard Sharp Smith, an English architect who also supervised the construction of the Biltmore House following the death of Richard Morris Hunt. Smith made many other important contributions to Asheville architecture, more information here and here.
