The Grove Park Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
Designed and developed by:
St. Louis entrepreneur Edwin Wiley Grove with the help of Chauncey Beadle, who is famous for his later work as a nursery man at the Biltmore Estate. It was the first neighborhood in Asheville to reject the grid system and adopt curvilinear streets dotted with parks and trees in a natural setting.
Type of neighborhood

Here you will find examples of many architectural styles such as Georgian Revival, Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Bungalow and Craftsman. Local architects include Richard Sharp Smith, Ronald Greene, Henry I. Gaines, William N. Dodge, Jr., and James Gamble Rogers among others
