It’s time to say good-bye to the Richmond Hill Inn, Asheville. After OM Sanctuary announced its plans in August to transform the historic grounds into a wellness-oriented retreat center, the nonprofit wants to give the public a chance to experience the grounds in a Community Closure event this Saturday.(photo by Caitlin Byrd)
Even with the charred Pearson mansion still standing on its grounds, plans to transform the historic Richmond Hill Inn into the Oshun Mountain Sanctuary are under way. OM Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization, held a press conference on Friday, Aug. 5, to talk about plans for the site and give a tour.
The Oshun Mountain Sanctuary, a nonprofit “dedicated to creating a center for rejuvenation,” has purchased the site of the former Richmond Hill Inn. The group, in partnership with RiverLink, announced the purchase today, Aug. 1, and noted the intent of raising $5 million more to complete construction of the project.
