Youngsville Real Estate
Youngsville is an extremely close knit North Carolina community located in Franklin County. As of the 2000 Census, this community had a population of just over 650 residents! With just 0.9 square miles of land, Youngsville is the kind of community where you can feel confident that everyone will know your name.
Rich in history, the town was originally known as Pacific and was first incorporated on March 17, 1875. Shortly thereafter, John “Jack” Young gave the community land to build a train depot and so to honor him, the town renamed itself Youngsville. It wasn’t an easy feat to change the town’s name, according to town historians. In fact, it took nearly 12 years to do so because of problems with the Post Office Department.
Since its incorporation, Youngsville has become well known for its vibrant agricultural industry. In fact, by 1900, the community was considered to be one of the largest tobacco markets in the south.
