The "Unspoiled Province"

Alleghany County is known as the Unspoiled Province because of its preserved, scenic beauty and undeveloped natural resources. Located between the ancient New River and the age-old Blue Ridge mountains, it reaches breathtaking heights of 3,000 to 4,000 feet.
 
These high elevations are the ideal enviroment for certain types of farming, namely the Christmas tree industry. In fact Alleghany County has proudly provided the White House Christmas Trees for both 2005 and 2007. These trees were hand picked by the White House's Chief Usher, Gary Walters. So when you start looking for that perfect tree, start you search here in Alleghany County.
 
This area offers visitors plenty of southern charm, a pleasant atmosphere, and a nice comfortable climate. For the adventure seeking vacationer, outdoor recreation abounds. There are miles of hiking trail in Stone Mountain and New River State Park and areas off of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
 
Camping is available at Doughton Park. Outfitters offer canoes, kayaks, rafts and tubes for floats down the New and Little Rivers - famous for their native trout. If your vacation isn't complete with a round or two of golf, check out the New River Country Club.
 
Music has always been an important part of mountain tradition. So whether you visit the Alleghany Jubilee to hear live blue grass, country and old-time music, or decide to join in the jam yourself at the Crouse House Pickers, good times and great music are had by all.
 
When visiting this friendly mountain community don't expect to find tourist traps, theme parks, or alpine villages. You'll journey at your own pace here - and experience a special kind of contentedness that comes from having no crowds, hustle, or added pressure. Just the serenity of the North Carolina mountains welcoming you home.
