The Asheville City Hall is built of brick, marble, and terra cotta in shades harmonizing with the natural colors of the clay soil. A feather-motif, recalling early Indian history, is an important ornamental feature.
In the entrance loggia, the trim and wainscot of are of Georgia pink marble; the vaulted ceiling is of dull gold tile, bordered in pink, black, and orange.
The building is surmounted by a tower covered with multi-colored tiling. The carillon in the tower is a memorial to the World War I dead.
Murals in the council chamber on the second floor depict the story of the Indians and white settlers. They were painted by Clifford Addams of New York.
The building has a steeped, octagonal shaped roof.
Stands as a constant reminder of the developmental boom of the 1920s that occurred within the city during its heyday as a tourist destination for the wealthy prior to the Great Depression.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
