Landscape: Biltmore Village (Asheville, Buncombe County, North Carolina)

Provenance note:
The village previously existed as Best, or Asheville Junction, until George Vanderbilt bought the town and created a planned village for workers at his estate.
Architectural note:
Many of the structures in the village have Tudoresque elements or follow Colonial Revival architectural styles.
Historical note:
The village included residential structures, All Souls Cathedral, the railroad depot, and estate offices, as well as a post office, hospital, and shops. The village was sold soon after Vanderbilt's death in 1914.
