Alleghany County NC and the city of Sparta NC were once known as North Carolina’s Lost Province. Sparta and Alleghany county lands were called this because they were secluded and cut off from the rest of the communities found in the NC Blue Ridge Mountains. Straddling the Eastern Continental Divide in northwestern North Carolina, Alleghany County was one of the most remote regions in Western North Carolina, settled only by a brave few after the Civil War. It was not until mining came to the area and the Virginia railroad built a depot that Alleghany County began to thrive. Today, Sparta North Carolina is a wonderfully preserved small town with welcoming locals and a distinct southern charm you won’t find anywhere else.
