We love living in Fairview, NC, a community in the Blue Ridge Mountains about ten miles southeast of Asheville.  For more than two hundred years, our lush, beautiful valley has been home to farms and the best of rural life while embracing artists, writers, photographers, and other creative souls who enjoy both the solitude and the friendliness of our Fairview neighbors.

Highway 74A, part of which is now a North Carolina Scenic Byway as it goes through Fairview, most likely follows the route of a Cherokee Indian trail connecting the Blue Ridge Mountains with the Piedmont. This trail later became a sand and gravel turnpike (toll) road known as the Drover's Turnpike, along which farmers drove their pigs, cattle and other animals to market.
