Yancey County is nestled in the diverse forests and lofty mountains of western North Carolina. The county shares its northwestern Appalachian Mountain Ridge with Tennessee. The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway outlines Yancey's southeastern boundary. The Yancey County Courthouse is located in Burnsville, about 35 miles northeast of Asheville.

Yancey County provides many essential services for its residents, including social services, public health and transportation, recreation, recycling, mapping projects, building inspections, and emergency response efforts. Equally important, Yancey County contributes at least 25 percent of the funding for its public schools. Each of the state's 100 counties is governed by an elected board of commissioners, which manages essential business concerns and allocates funds for civic affairs. Yancey County's Board of Commissioners is comprised of five elected officials serving two-year terms. The board hires a County Manager to direct general operations and to administer board policies. Other county offices include the Register of Deeds, County Board of Elections, and the Sheriff's Department. Locally, North Carolina encompasses more than 500 incorporated municipalities, each with its own charter and the power to levy local taxes. An elected Mayor and a four-person Town Board govern the town of Burnsville.

Yancey County is very proud of its dedication to traditional arts and crafts. Fine quilters, basketmakers, woodworkers, glassblowers, potters, metalsmiths, weavers, papermakers, painters, photographers, and sculptors, many of whom have national and international reputations, have settled in Yancey County. Surrounding mountains, forests, rivers, and waterfalls provide ample opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities and spectacular views. Skiing, golfing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, canoeing, tubing, camping, fishing, and hunting contribute to a delightful selection of adventures and fun and make Yancey County a wonderful place to work and live.
