Jefferson Real Estate
As the county seat of Ashe County, Jefferson claims a rich history complete with two sites on the National Register of Historic Places. The town was incorporated in 1799 and has since become the center of government, social services, and health care for the surrounding area. Natural beauty abounds from this scenic community as the New River and Mount Jefferson have become popular destinations for residents and tourists alike.
As a gateway community with convenient access to Appalachian State University, Jefferson is a quiet, artsy, and historical community with deep ties in agriculture and historical preservation. Many people gather in Jefferson to choose-and-cut their Christmas Tree at one of the area Farms, to enjoy music steeped in mountain heritage at the Ashe County Fiddler’s Convention, and to explore Ashe County’s own Barn Quilt Tour. Jefferson is a special community that beckons visitors, and some just may never leave.
