Alleghany County is located in the northwestern part of the state of North Carolina, along the border with Virginia. Established in 1859, the county was formed from parts of Ashe County. It was named after the Allegheny Mountains, which form a significant part of the county's landscape. The county seat is the town of Sparta, which was also founded in 1859.
Prior to the establishment of Alleghany County, the region was inhabited by Native American tribes, such as the Cherokee and the Shawnee. European settlers, primarily of English, Irish, and Scottish descent, began arriving in the area in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The region was primarily rural and agriculturally focused, with people engaged in subsistence farming and cattle raising.
Over time, the county diversified its economy to include industries such as lumbering, milling, and mining. In the latter half of the 20th century, the county saw an increase in tourism, taking advantage of its natural beauty and abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities, such as the Blue Ridge Parkway and Stone Mountain State Park.
