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 local restaurants.

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 in October.

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. Thousands of local residents and visitors enjoy premiere entertainment, downtown shops, arts and crafts vendors and foods of all kinds.
