The Coolest Corner of North Carolina

Welcome to Ashe County, the coolest corner of North Carolina! Whether a longtime local, a new resident of Ashe, or an explorer looking to make the most of a visit to the area, this site is the perfect tool to gather information and ideas! Ashe County’s location in the northwestern corner of North Carolina and its average elevation of 3,000 feet justify the name "the coolest corner of North Carolina," but there is so much more that contributes to this: our breathtaking scenery, our vibrant music and arts community, our special and diverse small towns, and our genuine, hardworking people.

We’re so proud to share with you this glimpse of what makes Ashe County such a wonderful place to visit and live. If you’d like more information, please ask our friendly and knowledgeable staff at the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center by calling (336) 846-9550 or contact us here. On behalf of the Chamber and our nearly 500 members, welcome to Ashe County! We’re so glad you’re here!
