The Mount Shepherd Pottery Site is a historic archaeological site on the grounds of the Mount Shepherd Retreat Center, outside Asheboro, North Carolina. The site is that of a late 18th-century pottery, possibly of Moravian origin. The principal feature of the site is a five-flued circular kiln, and it was accompanied by numerous pottery fragments and items, including stove tiles, slipware, earthenware, and smoking pipes. The site has been associated with a Moravian master potter, Gottfried Aust, who one researcher believes ran the site between 1793 and 1799.[2]

The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
