Burnsville, North Carolina

Located about halfway between Asheville and Boone, Burnsville NC is nestled among 19 of the highest mountains in the east. Nearby Mount Mitchell, at 6,684 feet, is the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, and it is accompanied by 18 other peaks over 6,300 feet. The county seat of Yancey County, Burnsville was established in 1833, and has as many artisans and crafts persons per capita as any town in the United States, with nearly 400 full-time and 200 part-time residing in Yancey County. One of the wonderful traditions of the county is the work being done by quilters, basket makers, and other traditional crafts persons and artists. Burnsville is also home to the Yancey County Farmers' Market, one of the oldest and largest tailgate markets in western North Carolina, held on Saturday mornings behind the Burnsville Town Center.   
The major festival is the Mount Mitchell Craft Fair, held every August on the beautiful town square of Burnsville. This great arts and crafts festival is one of the longest running in the mountains and has been held for over 50 years. Burnsville is also home to the historic
Nu Wray Inn, also located on the town square.
