Burnsville is a town and the county seat of Yancey County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 1,693 at the 2010 census.
The town was founded on March 6, 1834, from land conveyed by John "Yellow Jacket" Bailey, and named after Captain Otway Burns, a naval hero of the War of 1812. In 1909 a statue of Captain Burns was given to the town by his grandson, Walter Francis Burns, Sr. and was set on a granite pedestal in the center of the town square. It has an inscription which reads, in part, "He Guarded Well Our Seas, Let Our Mountains Honor Him." Due to damages, the original statue was replaced in the early 2000s.
One of the oldest buildings is the Nu-Wray Inn, built in 1833 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The Parkway Playhouse, the oldest continually operating summer stock theater company is located in Burnsville, and was started in 1947 by W.R. Taylor (a professor of drama from the Woman's College of North Carolina-now the University of North Carolina-Greensboro) and a group of dedicated community leaders.
In 2018, the Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair observed its 61st anniversary.
