Yancey is an elevated county (population 17,800) with some of the highest mountains to be found in Western North Carolina—and in the eastern U.S., for that matter. It makes sense, then, that the county offers living situations and outdoor experiences that go above and beyond the norm, presenting you with many opportunities to Live Abundantly.

While mountain traditions run deep in Yancey, the county has recently made some key modern advancements. In late 2012, the main highway through the county, US 19E, was expanded from two lanes to four, aiding travel to and from the area. That said, there's actually one less reason to drive out the county: In a 2010 referendum, Burnsville residents okayed alcohol sales, so Yancey is no longer a dry county.

Yancey is also home to one of the most unique communities in the South: Celo, a settlement and land trust founded in 1937. There, some 40 families adhere to a loosely defined humanist ethic and help run a collective farm and the Arthur Morgan School, a progressive middle school with roots in Quaker values and the Montessori educational approach.
