About this product
- DescriptionThe Ravenscroft School, a 19th-century Episcopal boarding school in Asheville, North Carolina, from 1856 to 1901, had three distinct phases. It was first a Classical and Theological School (1856-1864) and then, following the Civil War, a Theological Training School and Associate Mission (1868-1900); in 1887 it split into two departments, a Theological Training School/Associate Mission and Ravenscroft High School for Boys (1887-1901). 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. The book concludes with the efforts by historic preservationists to save the few remaining buildings of the Ravenscroft School during the late 1970s.
