The northernmost county on the Western North Carolina border, Ashe is one of the three counties, along with Watauga and Alleghany that made up the Lost Provinces of North Carolina. Though it was officially incorporated in 1799, Ashe County remained Isolated from the rest of the state by the Blue Ridge Mountains, not having a highway or railroad connecting it for more than a century.
Modern day Ashe is a mountain community with deep roots in high country tradition. Jefferson North Carolina, the first town to take the name of Thomas Jefferson, is the county seat, and West Jefferson has distinguished itself as a cultural and economic hub of Ashe County.
The scenic backdrop and high country outdoor activities make it a popular destination for tourist and vacation cabins, while the beautiful landscape and the relaxed mountain town life have led many to build or buy their dream homes in Ashe County.
