Welcome to Vance County, North Carolina


Senator Zebulon Baird Vance

History and Genealogy

Many thanks to the Library of Congress for their picture of Senator Zebulon Baird Vance, the "namesake" of this county.

He was the Mount Mitchell of all our great men, and in the affections and love of the people, he towered above them all. As ages to come will not be able to mar the grandeur and greatness of Mount Mitchell, so they will not be able to efface from the hearts and minds of the people the name of their beloved Vance.

-- Governor Thomas J. Jarvis
