Allison-Deaver House, Brevard NC

    The Allison-Deaver House is one of Western North Carolina’s finest surviving examples of early 19th-century architecture. Located in Transylvania County in Brevard, NC, the superbly restored house and farmstead are open to the public. The main house—a two story, wood timber structure with a full two-tiered porch—sits atop a steep sided hill overlooking an old Indian trail which later became a main road for settlers into the Davidson River region of what was Old Buncombe County. The house built by Benjamin Allison in 1815, was added onto by William Deaver in 1840.
