Note:
Ellington's drawings for the Asheville City Building are in the Edgar M. Lyda Collection, D. H. Ramsey Library, Special Collections, University of North Carolina at Asheville, and may be seen on the web. Ellington fashioned models of both the City Building and similar Buncombe County Courthouse. The models survive, although the county commissioners chose Milburn and Heister for the courthouse.
