Primary Areas of Business in Town
We invite you to join us in supporting Economic Development of the Town of Yanceyville! Since land is one of our most available resources it allows flexibility in planning the location of any new business. There are several new opportunities for businesses in Yanceyville including the new CoSquare co-working building. This is managaed by Caswell County Economic Development.
Yanceyville has three primary areas of business:
- Downtown (Historic district)
- Highway 86
- West Main Street
The Town's Central Business District (CBD) reflects its historical development. The Town's CBD begins at NC 62 and Main Street extending west on Main Street for approximately one mile. The focal point of the CBD is the historic Courthouse Square that contains the restored 1859 Caswell County Courthouse. About half of the CBD lies within the designated Yanceyville Historical District.
Caswell County and the Caswell County Board of Education own or occupy 19 buildings in close proximity to the Central Business District. Business in the CBD consists of a local drugstore, banks, lawyers offices, CPA's , hardware store, restaurants, clothing accessory store, and an antique shop that primarily serves as a local market. The CBD does not contain any regional or national retail businesses or chains.
Highway 86 is the primary location of larger retail and service businesses. It offers excellent highway access and busy sales activity.
West Main street is the home of many offices and home-businesses. This area is located in close proximity to the Historic Downtown and offers several undeveloped or under-utilized properties.
