Another huge visitor attraction in West Jefferson is the fresco paintings by world famous artist, Benjamin F. Long IV at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. Part of the Blue Ridge Fresco Trail, four of these frescoes are right here in Ashe County with 3 frescoes featured in West Jefferson’s St. Mary’s Episcopal Church which include Mary Great with Child, John the Baptist and Mystery of Faith. The Last Supper is located at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Glendale Springs, just 15 minutes east of West Jefferson. Seeing these exquisite life-size frescos will leave a lasting impression. The Fresco churches are open year-round and all ages, groups and buses are welcome.
