Yancey County, established in 1833, is a picturesque region located in the western part of North Carolina. It is named in honor of Bartlett Yancey, a prominent North Carolina statesman, and U.S. Congressman. The county covers an area of approximately 312 square miles and is nestled within the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are part of the larger Appalachian Mountain range. The county seat, Burnsville, was founded in 1834 and named after Captain Otway Burns, a naval hero during the War of 1812.

Throughout its history, Yancey County has been renowned for its agricultural contributions, with farming as one of its primary economic drivers. In the 1800s, families in the area primarily raised livestock and grew vegetable crops such as corn, beans, and potatoes. The construction of the Black Mountain Range Railroad in 1911 significantly improved transportation and accessibility within the region, allowing for greater trade and economic development. Today, alongside agriculture, Yancey County features a diverse economy with a focus on tourism, education, and small businesses.

One interesting fun fact about Yancey County is that it is home to Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, standing at an elevation of 6,684 feet. This popular destination is part of the Mount Mitchell State Park and offers breathtaking views, recreational activities, and an opportunity to experience the region's natural beauty.
