Narnia Studios moving across Main to historic Ewbank building

After more than two decades at the same location, Narnia Studios will cross Main Street and relocate to the historic Ewbank building at 408 N. Main Street on March 1, owner Barbara Hughes announced.

Designed by Erle Stillwell and built in 1923 by Ernest Lucas Ewbank and sons Frank and Harry, the Ewbank & Ewbank building was home to the family insurance and real estate business until 2004. The building was last home of The Fountainhead bookstore.

The climate-controlled shop is located in the heart of downtown right next door to another Stilwell building, the Henderson County Genealogical and Historical Society and mineral museum, which was built as State Trust Bank.

Founded in 1995, Narnia Studios is a fresh flower florist as well as a source for artwork from over 50 different local artists and potters. Narnia Studios will have the same selection of goods in an even more welcoming environment.

“We appreciate every purchase by our long time and brand new Narnia friends," Hughes said. "We know how important it is for our customers to have a shop they can rely on year after year. Now we will have space to better serve Hendersonville and its visitors."
