Vance County, which shares a border with Mecklenburg County, Virginia, to the north, as well as the counties of Granville (west), Franklin (south), and Warren (east) in North Carolina, was formed in 1881 from the surrounding North Carolina counties. It was named for Zebulon Vance, a former North Carolina governor and U.S. senator, possibly the most popular politician in the state at that time.
Notable Henderson natives include Charlie Rose and Ben E. King.
