Watauga County, located in the northwestern part of North Carolina, was established on December 29, 1849. The county was created from parts of Ashe, Caldwell, Wilkes, and Yancey Counties. Watauga County gets its name from a Native American term, which generally means "beautiful water" or "the land of many waters." This name pays tribute to the region's vast water resources including rivers, streams, and springs.

The area was initially inhabited by Native American tribes like the Cherokee, who typically used it as a hunting ground. European settlers, mainly of Scotch-Irish descent, arrived in the area in the 18th century. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Watauga County would witness significant transportation, educational, and agricultural developments.
