The local portion of the Boone Highway Trail runs from Wytheville, Virginia through Ashe County to Boone, NC.   One of the Boone Trail Monuments is supposed to be located between the towns of Jefferson and West Jefferson, but has not been reported in recent memory, and the Boone Family Trail Association would like to discover if it still exists or has been moved and might be restored to its location.

Now a book is available about the Boone trail and its markers:  Here


See the 1929 Announcement of the Ashe Boone marker dedication.
