Inscription. In 1926 Asheville and Buncombe County officials considered erecting matching government buildings on Court Plaze. The city chose Douglas Ellington's Beaux-Art 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.
