Jefferson and its' sister city, West Jefferson, are located in Ashe County in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. Interstates 77 and 40 are less than an hour away and the cities of Charlotte and Winston-Salem are less than two hours away. Jefferson is the oldest town in the "High Country" of North Carolina, founded in 1800 as the county seat. The historic old courthouse and surrounding buildings are still the center of the county government. This is a classic small town with warm, friendly people and a quiet way of life. It serves as the gateway to Mount Jefferson State Park and New River State Park, where recreation abounds for the nature lover. Engage in swimming, fishing and canoeing, hiking, biking or horseback riding, or enjoy a round of golf amid beautiful mountain scenery. It has been said, "there is no better experience than a hike to the summit of Mount Jefferson, a canoe trip on the New River, or a leisurely drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway." All are within minutes of Jefferson. Art, music and theater can be found at the Ashe Arts Center and the Ashe Civic Center, and the Ashe County Arts Council brings in talent from all over the country for monthly exhibits from artists, sculptors and photographers. Great restaurants, arts and crafts galleries and specialty shops can be found in Jefferson and West Jefferson, and at various spots along the scenic country mountain roads.

Jefferson Weather & Climate

The mountainous Northeast region of Tennessee has a temperate climate with moderately cold winters and warm, humid summers. Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the year so there is no distinct wet or dry seasons. October has the least rainfall, July the most. Snowfall is variable from year to year, and some winters have relatively little. Thunderstorms occur anytime of the year, but are most frequent in spring and summer. Summer temperatures are rarely extreme, but the high humidity often makes it seem hotter than it actually is. Severe storms are infrequent in the state, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be affected by hurricanes.
