Welcometo Wilkes County
Welcome to the Wilkes County Website.

Located just 80 miles from Charlotte, 45 miles from Winston-Salem, 45 miles from Hickory, and 35 minutes from Boone, Wilkes County remains an ideal location for those looking to escape the fast paced world of city living, while remaining close enough to commute for a night out on the town. Wilkes County offers the best of both worlds, presented with the flair of true southern hospitality.
