Grace Episcopal Church

Grace Episcopal Church, located in North Asheville, occupies a prominent site above Merrimon Avenue. It was designed circa 1905 by Richard Sharp Smith, an English architect who also supervised the construction of the Biltmore House after the death of Richard Morris Hunt.
A view of the interior courtyard of the church with the sanctuary on the right and the link between sanctuary and fellowship hall to its left. A covered walkway is behind the camera.

A close-up of the cross shown in the courtyard shot; probably of Celtic design.
