Because elevations range up to 2,300′ – you can enjoy a true 4-season climate, including spectacular spring and fall foliage. This area usually has a few good snows a year and moderate temperatures during the summer months.

This Wilkes County land near Stone Mountain State Park is a great choice for anyone wanting to enjoy the remote beauty of the mountains – without feeling completely isolated.

If you’re an avid hunter you’ll be pleased to know that this area of Wilkes County boasts abundant wildlife – including deer, turkey and the occasional black bear.

Now that we’ve described the area and the land itself – let’s dig into the history of this amazing property! Although no value has been assigned to it, you’ll find a historic 1800’s cabin on this property that was the childhood home of General Joseph Eggleston Johnston. Born in February, 1807, General Johnston attended the United States Military academy (West Point), and was a career U.S. Army officer who served with distinction in the Mexican-American War from 1846-1848, as well as the Seminole Wars. After Virginia seceded from the Union, General Johnston entered the Confederate States army as one of the most senior general officers, fighting in numerous battles against the Union. But how does he play into the history of this property?

As a child of 4, in 1811, his family moved into their newly constructed two-story log home in the Abingdon, VA area. More recently the home was completely disassembled, and reassembled with major improvements on this 223 acre listed property. In pricing this parcel for sale, no value has been placed on the current log structure, although its historical value is priceless. The possibilities for this structure are many. You simply must see for yourself! Read: Joseph E. Johnston: A Civil War Biography by Craig L. Symonds.

North Carolina Mountain Land – How we show land


Regardless of how much you enjoy the outdoors, you may not be into strenuous hiking.  That’s why we show most properties from the comfort and convenience of our Polaris Ranger.  The Ranger rides like a golf cart – on steroids – and goes anywhere. It has a comfortable bench seat, and we can handle as many as two adults up front, plus three full-grown teens in the back.  On most properties very little hiking is required.   Why, you ask?


The North Carolina mountains are well-known for growing some of the best hardwood trees in the U.S. That is why the furniture industry got its start here in the North Carolina mountains.  With annual rainfall of 50”, the climate is perfect for growing Red Oak, White Oak,  Maple, Poplar, Eastern White Pine, and many other popular species.  


As a result of generations of timber harvesting, many logging roads are left behind.  These are the trails created by loggers to remove the timber during its last cutting.  The logging trails leave behind fantastic hiking and ATV trails, so our Ranger can access almost all properties on the Ranger.  If you prefer hiking, we can do that also, however the Ranger provides a more enjoyable, less strenuous method of seeing our properties.


If you are seriously committed to buying NC mountain land, take the easy route by choosing a broker who not only has 49 years selling North Carolina mountain land.  But wait!  There’s more. Choose a land broker who believes in land, as evidenced by his personal ownership of Ghost Valley, his own 386 acre homeplace.
