Beginnings [1]

Yadkinville rests at the foot of the Appalachian mountain range. It is nestled among North Carolina's rolling hills and rich vineyards of the western Piedmont. Since 1851, the Town of Yadkinville has served as the County Seat for Yadkin County, which rightfully gains its name from the Yadkin River that creates the County's northern and eastern most edges. Yadkinville is located at the heart of Yadkin County at the intersection of Old US 421 and US HWY 601 between Winston-Salem and Wilkesboro.

Historically, both Yadkin County and Yadkinville are revered as farming communities, harvesting and curing cash crops such as tobacco. The introduction of the rail system in 1881 in bordering Surry County, across the river to the north, brought new wealth and prosperity to the area. However, such fortune was slow to spread throughout the region, taking nearly 10 years to extend the railroad to southern areas of the county.
