The winding route to Plumtree through far western Avery County on U.S. 19 East is the very definition of a road trip. It’s the kind of byway most people would take only if this out-of-the-way hamlet were the destination itself. But for fans of beer and scenic beauty, a thriving brewery and a cluster of outdoor options are enticing reasons to tour the North Toe River valley’s flower-filled fields.

Founded in 1779, long before Tennessee became a state, quiet little Jonesborough served as the capital of the geopolitical oddity known as the Lost State of Franklin, a territory along the North Carolina border that was organized as America's 14th state. It lasted from 1784 to 1788 but was never formally recognized by the union. Jonesborough is best enjoyed on foot, so park the car and stroll this historically rich town to appreciate the fine old houses and same westward-ho views that early pioneers took in.
