However, in the late 1920’s, a new style began to emerge in Montford that incorporated the Victorian style with a Neo-classical flavor that adds to the complexity and wonder of the neighborhood.

There has also been an emergence of many Bed & Breakfasts and other businesses in the recent past.
Riverside Cemetery is also located in historic Montford. Dating as far back as 1885, the cemetery is still active today. It is the burial place of noted author, Thomas Wolfe, and like the neighborhood, can be found in the National Historic Registry.
For all of it’s richness in architecture and history, Montford’s location is another major draw and makes it prime real estate. Montford is just a short walk or bike ride to bustling downtown Asheville. The neighborhood is also nestled close to the campus of the University of North Carolina at Asheville and the renowned Mission Hospital campus.
