Book Description:

The Ravenscroft School was a 19th-century Episcopal boarding school in Asheville, North Carolina, from 1856 to 1901. Although the school itself was only in existence for about 45 years, the purview of this book is from the early days of Asheville (1820s), to the building of Joseph Osborne's mansion in the 1840s (which would eventually house the school), through the years of the school's operation, and then on up to the mid-20th century when the campus buildings were sold and repurposed.
