Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,105 km² (427 mi²). 1,104 km² (426 mi²) of it is land and 2 km² (1 mi²) of it (0.15%) is water. Ashe County is located in extreme northwestern North Carolina. The county is bordered by two states: Virginia on the north; and Tennessee to the west. The county is located entirely within the Appalachian Mountains region of North Carolina. Most of the county is located atop a rolling plateau that ranges from 2,300 feet to 3,000 feet above sea level. On the county's southern border the land drops abruptly some 1,500 to 2,500 feet to the Piedmont section of North Carolina. Numerous mountains and hills dot the plateau; among the highest is Mount Jefferson, which rises to 4,665 feet, and towers some 2,000 feet above the towns of Jefferson and West Jefferson. The county's main river is the New River, which, ironically, is one of the oldest rivers in the world, and one of the few in North America which flow north instead of south, east, or west. There are 34 recorded creeks and streams that flow into the New River in Ashe County. The river itself has been designated an "American Heritage River" by President Bill Clinton, and it is famed for its' beautiful rural scenery, clear water, fly fishing, and kayaking and canoeing. Indeed, Ashe County generally is known for its' beautiful mountain scenery, and the tourism industry is an important mainstay of the county's economy. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the county's southern border. Ashe County has historically consisted of rural farmland, with numerous cattle and poultry farms. However, cattle farming in recent decades has given way to the more profitable industry of raising Christmas trees. Many cattle farmers have switched to growing Christmas trees, and one Ashe County Christmas tree was selected to serve as the official White House Christmas Tree by President George W. Bush. Indeed, it is a common sight after Thanksgiving to see cars, SUVs, and minivans from North Carolina's cities traveling from Ashe County with a freshly-cut Christmas tree tied to the top of the vehicle.

Trivia

  • Glendale Springs Inn: Glendale Springs is a tiny mountain village located near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Northwest Trading Post, an old-fashioned general store, is a popular attraction on the Parkway; it is located only a half-mile from the village. The village is home to the Glendale Springs Inn, a bed-and-breakfast which offers rooms to tourists, and which features a top-quality restaurant with a French chef. President Bill Clinton and Vice-President Al Gore ate here after dedicating the New River as an American Heritage River in 1997. The Inn is over 100 years old.
  • Shatley Springs: Another popular tourist attraction in Ashe County is Shatley Springs. In 1890 Marvin Shatley, who suffered from a skin disease, washed his face in the waters of a small spring in northern Ashe County. His skin disease was soon healed, and as news spread of the "miraculous healing powers" of the spring, it was bought and turned into a resort. People still come to the springs for the water (which is free, you just have to bring the containers to put it in), as well as for the mountain scenery and the Shatley Springs restaurant. The restaurant serves family-style country dinners and lunches, and is usually crowded in the summer months.
  • Cheese: Ashe County once had a thriving dairy industry with two cheese factories, one in West Jefferson, the other in Lansing. Due to the decline of the county's dairy industry, only one of the cheese factories remains open. It is the only wholesale/retail cheese factory located in North Carolina.
