Back by popular demand, our weekly feature ‘This Week in Ashe County History’ is now available on the homepage of the Historical Society’s website. After combing through books, interviews, newspaper articles, and other documents, we have created a comprehensive list of interesting events related to the history of the county. These events were previously featured on our Facebook page; since that time, we have added additional information and historical events. Some are inspiring, some are humorous, some are tragic, but all will help you feel a deeper connection to the people and places that made Ashe County the amazing place it is today.

Scroll to the bottom of the homepage to see what happened this week in days gone by. The list will be updated each Monday.
