riding, fishing, camping, tubing and whitewater rafting. The majestic solitude of the mountains, the gentle pace of life and the warm, welcoming community atmosphere have enticed numerous artists and craftspeople to live and work in Yancey County. Adding to the area’s enjoyable cultural diversity are many art galleries and craft shops, as well as the various festivals scheduled throughout the year. Burnsville, the county’s largest town, is a picture of Americana, the kind of place that invites you to take a leisurely stroll through its streets and neighborhoods.

Location

Yancey County is framed with natural beauty.

Y

ancey County is nestled in the scenic mountains and forests of western North Carolina. The county is surrounded by beauty: Its northwestern border is the Appalachian Mountain ridge, while the southeastern boundary is outlined by the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. The county is centrally located in western North Carolina, midway between Boone and Asheville. The climate here is mild, but we are touched by all four seasons. Summertime highs usually peak in the mid-80s, while evening temperatures dip into the comfortable 50s. You’ll not only find the delicate beauty of spring in Yancey County — you’ll also discover crisp fall days painted by the glorious

changing colors of the leaves. Winter brings its own beauty, with snowfalls usually ranging from less than an inch to a foot or more, with yearly accumulations averaging 15.6 inches. The average annual rainfall for the area is 59 inches. Mount Mitchell, in Yancey County, is the highest peak east of the Rockies, at 6,684 feet. This is the place to come for grand mountain views, as the average elevation here is 2,817 feet — the highest average in the state. Total land area for Yancey County is 311 square miles, which equals over 199,040 acres. Burnsville, located in a scenic, elevated site between the Cane and South Toe rivers, is home to just over 1,600 of the 18,421 &)XZ& 4VJUF #VSOTWJMMF /$

residents of the county. Burnsville is approximately 35 miles northeast of Asheville and 120 miles northwest of Charlotte. U.S. Highway 19E, the major east-west route in Yancey County, and Highway 226, which skirts its northeastern border, provide transportation in and out of the area. An extension of Interstate 26, which opened in 2003, opened Yancey County even further, creating easy access to the Tennessee border. Expansion of U.S. 19E, making it the county’s first four-lane highway, is set to begin in the next couple of years. This thoroughfare will eventually connect the cities of Asheville and Boone. Burnsville has two car rental services. Air service for Yancey County is available through Asheville Regional Airport, served by Continental Express, Delta Connection, Northwest Airlink and US Airways Express. From here, you can fly to over 200 destinations around the globe while making only one connection. Passenger services at the airport include food and beverage vendors, a business center with complimentary high-speed Internet access, and five rental car companies. The airport also offers fixed-base operations, flight training and even a helicopter tour service. Additionally, Greyhound Bus Lines offers bus service to Asheville.

History

We continue to honor our county’s proud legacy.

E

stablished in 1833, Yancey County is named for distinguished statesman Bartlett Yancey, who served in the U.S. Congress from 1813 to 1817 and was speaker of the North Carolina Senate from 1817 to 1827. Among his legislative accomplishments, Yancey helped create an educational fund to support the state’s public school

converted merchant cutter called Snap Dragon during the War of 1812. Burns was one of the best-known privateers of that war, capturing several valuable British cargoes along the Atlantic coastline. After this naval hero became a state legislator, he continued Yancey’s efforts, casting the deciding vote that created the county. In 1834, the county seat of Burnsville was established and was named in his honor. In 1909, the captain’s grandson, Walter Francis Burns, Sr., contributed a statue of the statesman with the inscription, “He Guarded Well Our Seas, Let Our Mountains Honor Him.” The 6-foot copper statue has become a treasured landmark on the Burnsville Town Square. The Yancey History Association and the Chamber of Commerce have jointly worked to preserve one of the region’s most significant historic sites. The McElroy House (circa 1840), home of the Rush Wray Museum of Yancey County History, served as headquarters for the Home Guard for much of western North Carolina during the Civil War. The Chamber of Commerce operates the Visitor’s Center in a restored service station on West Main Street below the museum. The Rush Wray Museum hosts the annual Commemoration of the “Battle of Burnsville” during the third weekend in April. Historians in period dress conduct tours and talks at the museum, and the battle re-enactment is complete with military camps and cannon

“He Guarded Well Our Seas, Let Our Mountains Honor Him.” system. Adding to his legacy, and giving him a personal place in our region’s history, was his involvement in the process of establishing Yancey County. Residents of the beautiful county that bears his name continue to preserve Yancey’s memory. After Yancey’s death, establishment of the county was made possible through the efforts of Capt. Otway Burns, commander of a 6 Yancey County/Burnsville Chamber of Commerce

fire. The McElroy House has been placed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the National Parks Service North Carolina Division Civil War Trails Program. During the “Battle of Burnsville,” a group of 40–50 women robbed the local Confederate commissary. Within a few days there was an uprising led by Montraville Ray, a Confederate soldier who had deserted and now led 75 other men against some of their own in the small town of Burnsville. War Gov. Vance, Col. Palmer in Asheville, and Gen. McElroy all kept in communication, trying to arrange an effort to take back the town. They accomplished their goal within a couple of days when 200 of Palmer’s men arrived. Among other Yancey County structures on the National Register is the 1908 town hall and police department, which originally served as the county courthouse, and Burnsville’s library, founded by the Burnsville Woman’s Club in the 1930s and housed in a former bank building. Perhaps the region’s oldest building on the National Register is Burnsville’s first inn, a two-story log trading post and stagecoach stop built in 1833. Once known as the Ray Hotel, the inn has changed ownership several times over the years. In 1918, the structure was bought and renovated by William B. and Julia Wray, creating what is now called the Nu-Wray Inn. Prominently located on the Town Square, the lodge still offers guests genuine hospitality and hearty meals in an atmosphere steeped in history. History plays a significant role in Yancey County, as we continue to preserve not only the original architecture of the past, but also the legacies of our founding fathers. Through local historians, genealogists, storytelling, living historians, original crafts and cultural events, our traditions, music and heritage never cease to be celebrated.


Education

Yancey County schools foster extraordinary student achievement.

Yancey County Public Schools Yancey County Schools is an impressive school system driven by a single purpose: “Our Vision is Excellence, Character, and Knowledge.” Yancey County Schools is comprised of nine schools: six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. These institutions instruct approximately 2,500 students each year. Close to 1,150 are elementary school students; roughly 600 are middle school students, and about 780 are high school students. Among the many advantages of this rural community system is the ability to maintain small class sizes. The average class size for kindergarten through eighth grade during the 2005–2006 school year was 21 students. All Yancey County Schools are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the School Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS-CASI). This has earned Yancey County Schools recognition as a Super District for Quality Schools, and it makes the district eligible to receive District Accreditation. Yancey County Schools is engaged in a collaborative, districtwide, continuous improvement process and has implemented a District Improvement Plan that’s aligned with the State Board of Education’s “Future-Ready Students for the 21st Century” goals. In preparing

students for post-secondary education and the workforce, Yancey County Schools follows the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. A range of outstanding academic programs and courses are offered to target all students’ needs, including regular core courses, honors, advanced placement, dual enrollment, an exceptional children’s program, academically and intellectually gifted classes, English as a Second Language, and career and technical education. Each school provides an extended day program and summer academies. During the 2005–2006 school year,

football, volleyball, tennis, track, golf, wrestling, softball and soccer. According to the North Carolina State Board of Education Accountability Model, in 2005–2006, Bee Log Elementary, East Yancey Middle, and South Toe Elementary qualified as “Schools of Distinction,” recognition based on 80 to 89 percent of students performing at or above Achievement Level III on end-ofyear state-mandated tests. Extraordinary performance by students can be attributed to a strong core of dedicated teachers and the administration, staff, parents and community that support them. Yancey County Schools is proud to have 100 percent highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals, according to the NCLB (No Child Left Behind) criteria. Forty-six percent of the professional staff members in Yancey County schools have advanced degrees. Fifteen percent of instructional personnel are National Board Certified teachers. During the past decade, through annual local fundraising events, Yancey County Schools Foundation has awarded over $250,000 to teachers for mini-grant instructional programs. Yancey County Schools collaborate extensively with regional institutes of higher education to further enhance the educational experiences of students and the professional

“Our Vision is Excellence, Character, and Knowledge.” Burnsville Elementary and East Yancey Middle were awarded a substantial 21st Century Community Learning Center grant to implement a comprehensive after-school program. The arts and foreign language, including band, strings, chorus, visual and performing arts, and Spanish, are integral programs that offer creative, expressive and cultural opportunities for our students. Yancey County Schools’ athletic program contributes to developing young athletes’ interest and skills in sports that include baseball, basketball,

Education growth and development of teachers and administrators. Examples of extended learning and support programs include dual enrollment for high school students, Adventures of the American Mind, and the Center for Support of Beginning Teachers.

Private Schools Arthur Morgan School provides a valuable boarding and day school alternative for seventh through ninth grade students. Through its strong work program, innovative academic classes, field trips, and wilderness and recreational experiences, students and teachers learn by living and working together. The rustic community environment provides an academic home for about 30 students and a dozen instructors. For those parents who want their children to learn in an environment that blends spiritual development with academic scholarship, there are several Christian schools in the area. Students from varying religious faiths attend these institutions.

Preschool and Community Resources Throughout North Carolina, the statewide Smart Start Initiative helps preschool children take a strong first step toward succeeding in school. Mitchell-Yancey Partnership for Children, the local Smart Start agency, envisions the entire community sharing the responsibility for giving all children a healthy, safe and nurturing environment in which to grow. Core services supported through the partnership’s target areas will provide access to high-quality and affordable child care, health care and other critical services for children up to age 5 and their families.

The college provides training programs for new and expanding industries in the county.


Education North Carolina Cooperative Extension: Yancey County Center The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service is an educational partnership helping people put research-based knowledge to work for economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and improved quality of life. North Carolina Cooperative Extension is associated with the College of Agriculture and Life Science at North Carolina State University and the School of Agriculture at North Carolina A&T State University. The staff members are part of the outreach teaching faculty of N.C. State University and N.C. A&T State University, reaching millions of people each year in the communities where they live. Strategic priorities are:

To strengthen the economy through profitable, sustainable and safe food, forest and green industry systems. Extension agents work to support existing agriculture and to help farmers develop alternative enterprises. Production of greenhouse and forest products, ornamentals, and vegetables grown on black plastic are gaining popularity, while tobacco continues to be an important crop. One popular specialty crop in the county is shiitake mushrooms. Annual workshops bring together diverse groups of all ages and backgrounds to learn how to grow and market mushrooms.

To protect the environment and natural resources. The Toecane Beekeepers Association actively promotes the growth of the area honey industry through education and technological innovation. The association boasts over 80

members from Mitchell and Yancey counties. Monthly educational meetings are held to inform local growers on beekeeping issues. The staff continues to assist farmers and homeowners in making safe fertilizer and pesticide choices and recommends rates of application for optimum plant and soil health and crop production. Recommendations are made for the lowest-risk, yet most effective, treatment choice, but may be as simple as recommending alternate plant varieties that resist known pests.

To empower youth and families to lead healthier lives and become community leaders. Yancey County has an active Extension and Community Association (ECA). Members are involved in activities from the community to the state level. Most important is a county council project of making and selling a quilt each year to raise scholarship funds to help a high school student entering the field of family and consumer science. Nurturing Parenting programs help parents learn about child development, alternatives to hitting, ways to build self-esteem and self-concept in their children and themselves, ways to increase their empathy, and ways to recognize their child’s feelings as well as their own. The Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP) is a federally funded nutrition-education program designed to help limited-resource families and youth learn skills to provide sound and affordable diets that contribute to their personal development. The 4-H Youth Development Program in Yancey County assists youth and adults in becoming competent, coping and ­contributing

members of a global society and in developing essential life skills through planned “learn by doing” experiences. The organization is a partnership that began over 90 years ago when county, state and federal governments agreed that, by joining together, they could ensure that all citizens had access to the wealth of knowledge being generated at public universities. Today, Yancey County is served by Yancey County Cooperative Extension, which acts as a gateway to the resources of N.C. State and N.C. A&T State universities. Staff members utilize a core group of volunteers, known as the Advisory Leadership System, to assist them in determining the most relevant issues affecting individuals, families and communities. Yancey County staff work side-by-side with local officials, lay advisors, volunteers and grassroots organizations to achieve common educational goals.

Health Care

Facilities in Yancey County provide quality, comprehensive care.

Blue Ridge Medical Center-Yancey Campus Blue Ridge Medical Center-Yancey Campus, formerly Mission Family Medical Center, opened its doors in May 2005. This new facility on Medical Campus Drive, across from Mountain Heritage High School in Burnsville, houses an adult care practice as well as a pediatric clinic, each well-equipped to meet the medical needs of residents throughout the surrounding area. An exceptional medical staff assists patients throughout the day, with adult clinic hours extending into most evenings. On-call physician coverage for both pediatric and adult patients is available after hours. The pediatric division of the center provides complete medical care for infants, young children and adolescents. Pediatricians and a pediatric nurse practitioner treat young patients at the clinic. The staff is also available to answer any questions you may have about infant care and child care, growth of children, and common illnesses. Blue Ridge Medical Center-Yancey Campus is a subsidiary of Blue Ridge Regional Hospital (formerly Spruce Pine Community Hospital), a comprehensive regional inpatient facility located 15 miles east of Burnsville in Spruce Pine. 10 Yancey County/Burnsville Chamber of Commerce

Blue Ridge Regional Hospital Blue Ridge Regional Hospital (formerly Spruce Pine Community Hospital) is a 46-bed facility that is a member of Mission Hospitals in Asheville. Blue Ridge Regional has been serving the medical needs of the community for over 50 years and is in the final stages of a $22.6 million expansion — the largest expansion in the history of the hospital — slated for completion in March 2008. The affiliation between Blue Ridge Regional and Mission provides patients with seamless access to a nationally ranked hospital. Specialized protocols at Blue Ridge Regional ensure that patients needing more advanced care are stabilized and transferred to Mission when necessary. And, in the future, the two hospitals will have electronic medical record interconnectivity, so patient information and test results will arrive at Mission before the patient is admitted, expediting treatment and minimizing long-term complications from delays in treatment of strokes, heart attacks and severe trauma. “As we begin our next 50 years, we continue to bring state-of-the-art technology and the latest treatment approaches to our region,” says Keith Holtsclaw, SPCH CEO/President.

“A spirit of partnership and community pride inspired citizens of this area to build this hospital in 1955. In that same spirit, we remain committed to advancing the level of care we offer to our community.” Recent upgrades to patient services, medical and surgical equipment, and diagnostic exams provide people in this region with the highestquality, most cutting-edge health care possible. National awards from health care organizations such as CareScience, Cleverley & Associates, Premier and Solucient are verification that the care available at Blue Ridge Regional is as good as or better than the care provided at any other hospital its size in the nation. The Blue Ridge Fitness & Rehabilitation Center (formerly Spruce Pine Community Hospital Fitness & Rehabilitation Center) is located in West Burnsville. This 23,000square-foot facility is owned and operated by Blue Ridge Regional Hospital and is used by the community in two ways: Part of the building operates as a rehabilitation center, while the remaining part is a community fitness center. Licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists provide a full range of treatment services at the rehabilitation center, while the fitness center offers a wide variety of activities for its

Health Care Housed in a modern facility, constructed in 2002 through public and private donations and grants, the center offers patients nine exam rooms, a trauma/procedure room, new X-ray and lab facilities, a patient-education classroom, and a comfortable waiting area.

Other Regional Medical Agencies and Facilities Graham Children’s Health Services of Toe River is a nonprofit community coalition funded with a grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Foundation. The agency focuses on preventive medicine, needs assessment, advocacy and health care for area children. Graham Health Services coordinates with health care providers at the middle schools and taps other community resources to identify and serve youth that may require assistance. Healthy Yancey is an active organization made up of volunteer citizens, agencies, health advisory groups and service providers who share a vision of promoting good health to everyone in the community. With offices at the Yancey County Health Department Annex, Healthy Yancey currently hosts two annual meetings for interested participants. Presently there are three “action teams” operating within the organization. The Health Education Team provides health information to the community in an effort to improve community and school nutrition. The Lifestyle Improvement Team is working to build walking paths and biking trails. The Senior Action Team, in partnership with MAHEC, addresses the health needs of the elderly. The Yancey County Center for Physical Therapy provides valuable outpatient physical therapy for all types of injuries and medical conditions. These can include orthopedic or neurological injuries as well as numerous

types of arthritic conditions. The patients who visit the facility come from a diverse population and range from children to the elderly. A wellness program that emphasizes preventative care is also available. Tri-County Pregnancy Center is a nonprofit community agency providing prenatal information, pregnancy testing, counseling, referrals and abortion alternatives to women requesting assistance in Yancey, Avery and Mitchell counties. In addition to the medical facilities mentioned here, Burnsville offers pharmacies, dental care, eye care and chiropractic services.

Senior Services Yancey County, with its mild climate and community attractions, continues to draw a growing number of residents over the age of 65. In order to meet the needs of this growing population, the community offers numerous housing options, as well as many other senior services. Yancey County Senior Center is available to all senior residents who are at least 60 years old. The center’s services include on-site meals, home-delivered meals, physical fitness classes, ceramics classes, games and various social activities.

Creativity and beauty meet mountain heritage.

ore artists per capita reside in the mountains of western North Carolina than in any other region in the United States. Nearly 700 people are employed — either full-time or part-time — in arts and crafts industries in Yancey and Mitchell counties. Not surprisingly, visitors can find a wealth of authentic craft shops and intriguing galleries throughout the county. These shops and galleries showcase the work of well-known regional artists and include artwork such as pottery, glass, paintings, prints, photographs, woodwork, quilts, metals, jewelry, toys and textiles. Not only can you shop for arts and crafts here, but you can also observe many nationally acclaimed artists creating masterpieces in their studios. Some of the shops even allow amateurs to hone their artistic skills through classes. Playing an important role in the crafts of glassblowing and pottery is the EnergyXchange. The mission of this organization is to demonstrate the responsible use of landfill gas as an energy source for small enterprise in craft and

horticulture. The Mitchell-Yancey site for EnergyXchange includes two craft studios (one for pottery and one for glassblowing), four greenhouses, three cold frames, a public gallery, and a visitor center. The EnergyXchange Incubator program was established to support entrepreneurs in starting, managing and operating new businesses in the crafts of glassblowing and pottery. Craft residencies are available to potters and glassblowers who are competitively selected

the Yancey/Mitchell County area. Sponsored activities include year-round arts and music events, art workshops, tours of area studios, an annual arts auction, a new quilt mural trails project, and two galleries that showcase area visual artists’ work. TRAC also provides cultural and educational programs for children, including art and music classes and in-school performances — both during and after school. In addition to arts and crafts, theater productions offer an enjoyable diversion for residents and guests. The Parkway Playhouse in Burnsville is a splendid professional theater that has been entertaining summer audiences since 1947. As North Carolina’s oldest continuously running summer stock theater, the Parkway Playhouse opened with a grant from the Carnegie Foundation. Since its debut, the grand old theater has thrilled audiences summer after summer with its live theater magic. Burnsville Little Theater is a flourishing amateur group that stages two or three productions at the Parkway Playhouse each year.

The Burnsville Town Center, open since 2005, has provided a venue for many cultural and community activities, including TRAC’s monthly Java Jam Music Series, Parkway Playhouse winter plays and student afterschool drama classes, local dancing and gymnastic classes, quilt meetings and exhibits, and a host of various other types of performances. The world-renowned Penland School of Crafts attracts outstanding artists to the area.

A national center for craft education, Penland was founded by Lucy Morgan, a teacher at an Episcopalian school. In 1923, Morgan organized the Penland Weavers, providing looms and materials to local women and then marketing their handwoven goods. When requests for instruction began to come from other parts of the country, Penland School was born. Today, over 1,200 people come to Penland each year seeking instruction in 10 craft media. The Penland Gallery exhibits the cherished work of instructors, students and residents. Music plays a very important role in the culture of Yancey County. Whether you prefer folk, country, bluegrass or gospel, all styles of music are played and enjoyed here. You can listen to local musicians in the Town Square, attend a lively school band concert, or hear inspirational gospel music at a local church. When people here are gathered together, there’s music. A relatively new voice for Yancey culture and arts is the Cultural Resource Commission, a group that helps promote the endeavors of local artists. One of the commission’s current projects involves the refurbishing of an old dormitory in a historic section of town across from the Parkway Playhouse. This facility, which has a full-time, paid director, will soon serve as an incubator for new artists and will provide studio space for craft making, performing arts and music recording.

S

teeped in a rich religious tradition, Yancey County values spiritual faith in all aspects of community life. Dating back to the founding of the county, religious institutions have played a major role in residents’ lives and activities. You can still see many of the earliest churches, which have become community landmarks across the rural landscape. A testament to the area’s strong Christian roots, these pioneer churches can be spotted occupying distinct picturesque sites on grassy knolls and steep hillsides. Today more than 100 churches provide a foundation of faith for the area. Like much of North Carolina, the Baptist denomination makes up the largest church community, but other faiths are also strongly represented. Typical of the Baptist congregations here is West Burnsville Baptist Church. This group of worshipers presents an annual Christmas pageant that features a 50-voice choir and a cast of nearly 100 participants

wearing spectacular costumes. The pageant opens with a matinee on the first Sunday after Thanksgiving, and performances continue throughout the subsequent week. West Burnsville also has a Sunday night program called “Team Kid� that is open to children throughout the community. First Baptist Church on the Square in Burnsville also has several unique programs for area residents. The church’s youth program offers yearly mission/youth retreats and is very active in community projects such as Habitat for Humanity. The youth of the church have also been active in building wheelchair access for families in the area. First Baptist has an excellent music program, a growing Sunday School program and a very active Women on Mission organization. The Methodist faith also has a strong presence in Yancey County. Higgins Memorial Methodist Church, on North Main Street in Burnsville, now offers an early-morning contemporary service. It also has a Wednesday afterschool program called “CAST� that provides tutoring and creative activities for children. Other denominations found in the county include Presbyterian, Catholic, Church of God, Church of God of Prophecy, Church of Christ, AME Zion, Quaker, Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventist and non-denominational. Religious-affiliated groups meeting the spiritual and educational needs of residents include the area’s private Christian schools and the High Pastures Christian Retreat, a popular facility for meetings, conferences and wedding receptions. Interfaith services are held for events such as the National Day of Prayer and Jesus Day. The Yancey County Christian Action League unites a number of churches representing all faiths. The members of this group work toward common goals to meet both the spiritual and physical needs of the Yancey community.

The following churches are members of the Yancey County/Burnsville Chamber of Commerce. • First Baptist Church on Town Square. • First Presbyterian Church on Church Street. • Higgins Memorial United Methodist on Main Street. • West Burnsville Baptist Church on West Burnsville Church Road. • The Gathering Place on East Main Street. • St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Robertson Street. 26 Yancey County/Burnsville Chamber of Commerce
