Yanceyville is a town in and the county seat of Caswell County, North Carolina, United States.[6] The population was 2,039 at the 2010 census.[7]

History

It has been the county seat since 1792 (although the settlement was originally called Caswell Court House until 1833). The original Caswell County Courthouse has been renovated and provides offices for county departments. The new courthouse is located a few blocks north.

There remains uncertainty as to the person for whom Yanceyville is named. Some say it is named for James Yancey (1768–1829). Others claim it is named for his younger brother, Bartlett Yancey, Jr.(1785–1828).[8] A few believe the name honored the entire Yancey family, long prominent in the area.

In addition to the Caswell County Courthouse, the Graves House, William Henry and Sarah Holderness House, John Johnston House, Poteat House, Bartlett Yancey House, Yanceyville Historic District, and Melrose/Williamson House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[9][10]
