Ashe County NC is made up of the following municipalities and
we have provided a brief description of each:
Glendale Springs: Nestled between the South Fork of
the New River and the Blue Ridge Parkway can be found the
quaint community of Glendale Springs. It is more than a
highlight of visitor trips to Ashe County NC; it is a place of
tranquil enchantment to those who remain behind. Lending a
religious aura to the community is the artistic treasure: D.
Jeffrey Mims “The Last Supper” fresco. This life-sized
depiction of an event central to the Christian experience is
permanently enshrined in The Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.
Glendale Springs…visit, shop, canoe the New River, dine in
luxurious surroundings…breath in the fresh mountain air and
be renewed for a lifetime.
Jefferson: The Town of Jefferson, the county seat of
Ashe County, established in 1800 and chartered in 1803, is
one of the oldest towns in Western North Carolina. Jefferson
North Carolina is home to the newly renovated 1904 Courthouse which was
replaced with a modern facility in 2001. The vacated 1904
courthouse is being renovated to provide space for a
visitors center, a museum and other appropriate entities to
reveal the culture and history of Jefferson and Ashe County
in earlier times. Also enjoy Foster-Tyson park and many
Lansing: The Lansing North Carolina municipality of Ashe County,
located in the mountainous northeastern section of the
county, is rich with memories and history. The first post
office for the unincorporated community of Lansing was
established in 1882. It served a primarily rural community
made up of a village and outlying farms until the railroad
came in 1914. The arrival of the Norfolk and Western
Railroad triggered a boom in the area, which culminated in
the town's being chartered and incorporated in 1928. An iron
mine operated for a few years, shipping ore from Lansing.
When Lansing was just beginning to grow into a prosperous
town, a fire almost destroyed it. It began early one
morning in the 1930's. A community bucket brigade was able
to save a little. After a second major fire in the 1940's,
the community started a fire department. Today there are
many interesting things to do in Lansing North Carolina, including the
Greater Lansing Area Festival, held each September.
Todd: Mountain music and historic stores is an
important part of Todd's heritage and culture. Todd features
the Todd Island Park and the Walter and Annie Cook Memorial
Park with a third, Green Valley Park, in the process. Shop
at the Todd General Store & other area shops, ride a bike
along Railroad Grade Road, listen to the music or visit one
of Todd's festivals, including the New River Festival held
West Jefferson NC: West Jefferson NC downtown area
features more than a dozen galleries, craft shop, and
restaurants. The town hosts several murals that create a
"walking tour." The murals are the works of local artists
and others in North Carolina that depicts the area's history
and unique character. Christmas In July, celebrating its
20th anniversary 2006, is our annual Independence Day
weekend celebration. The downtown West Jefferson NC festival
has its roots in the local Christmas tree industry.
