Alleghany County

Alleghany County is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northwestern North Carolina and was formed out of Ashe County by an act of the 1858-1859 session of the North Carolina legislature. One of our goals is to preserve the qualities of our county while moving toward the future with technology and economic development. With our small-town charm and Southern atmosphere, Alleghany County is a great place to live, work and just enjoy life.

Once known as the Lost Province due to its early isolation, Alleghany County is now known as the Unspoiled Province because of its preserved, scenic beauty and undeveloped outdoors.

 Located on the Eastern Continental Divide in northwestern North Carolina, this Unspoiled Province is nestled between ancient rivers and age-old mountains that reach splendid heights of 3,000 to 4,000 feet.

 The area's charm and pleasant atmosphere is matched by a comfortable and gentle climate. Even on the hottest days of summer, a cool refreshing breeze is guaranteed by the lofty elevation.

For the visitor seeking recreation, there are miles of hiking trail in the state and national parks -- Stone Mountain and New River State Park and Blue Ridge Parkway -- as well as along county back roads
