The Little-Known Church Hiding In North Carolina That Is An Absolute Work Of Art

Tucked deep within the rolling hills of Ashe County, two quiet and simple Episcopal churches house marvelous works of art. North Carolina native, Ben Long, ventured to West Jefferson in 1974 and painted amazing frescoes in two local churches. Today, the endearing work by Long has made the ‘Church of the Frescoes’ one of West Jefferson’s most popular tourist destinations.
