Yadkin County was formed in 1850 from Surry County, south of the Yadkin River (after which the county is named). It's considered part of the piedmont (middle) region of North Carolina, but the Brushy Mountains skirt the western part of Yadkin.
We decided to make stops in Jonesville, Boonville, and Yadkinville, the county seat, as we made our way eastward toward home.

Next, we stopped in Boonville, where the public library and a mural of the town were highlights. Apparently, the town is named after Daniel Boone, who spent some time in the area. Read all about it on the webpage, "History of Boonville, NC."
I look forward to returning to Yadkin County sometime, especially to explore the wineries in the area! Meanwhile, the rest of my Yadkin County photos are here.
