Welcome to Yanceyville!

Nestled in the central north of the state, in Caswell County, Yanceyville enjoys the convenience of being almost the same distance from the mountains or the beach. We also have an abundance of offerings right at home such as S.R. Farmer and Hyco Lake, the Yanceyville Museum of Art Featuring Maud Gatewood and several local parks and recreational areas as well as a wonderful tribute to our local veterans and fallen first responders.


Yanceyville may be listed as a small town, but there is a wealth of opportunities to grow or start a business, to raise a family or just enjoy the quietness of our rural community.


There is something about a small community that instantly feels like home, no matter where you are from. In Yanceyville this happens quickly as you are welcomed into the community and supported by local government, businesses, and neighbors. Come explore for yourself what life in Yanceyville is like.

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 multiple opportunities for businesses in Yanceyville including the new CoSquare coworking space. This is managed by Caswell County Economic Development and is home to numerous remote workers that call Yanceyville and Caswell County home, yet work for corporations all over the US.


Yanceyville has three primary areas of business:


  • Downtown (Historic District)

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. Businesses in the CBD consist of banks, lawyer offices, CPA's, bail bondman, financial planner, newspaper, hardware store, take out restaurant, barber shop, salon and the CoSquare shared workspace. The CBD does not contain any regional or national retail businesses or chains.
