Visiting the North Carolina mountains is always a feast for the eyes. One of my favorite places to go is down town West Jefferson, a little town near where my parents reside. Over the more than a decade that my parents have lived there, the town has grown and changed while still retaining much of its history. Last year they celebrated their centennial birthday.
One of many murals in the area
I love this church on Main Street
love the sign that says to keep right…the building is connected to other buildings on both sides, lol
The Cheese Factory is a big part of Ashe County history
historical photos put up to celebrate the 100th birthday
everyone should have cheese vat shaped like a cow, hehehe
this is the local newspaper…usually about 8 pages long
Yep, I thought it was a real person, too!
my favorite place to visit when I’m in town
Mom and Dad checking out the menu at Bohemia
some local artists sell their wares in the seating area….potters….
it’s a great place for gatherings….formal….
It’s going to be awhile before I get to Bohemia again, so I’ll just have to make do with Starbucks and Caribou until then. Unless I can get to Emerson’s or Talia in the North Carolina foothills. I think I have a latte problem, hehehe.
Until next time, readers, drive safely out there 🙂
