First incorporated in 1875, like many towns in the Triangle region, Youngsville’s history includes being a train depot. John “Jack” Young gave land for the depot.

By 1900, the town had become one of the largest tobacco markets in the South.
Youngsville has several attractions that draw people in from all over the state. These include Hill Ridge Farms that promises good old-fashioned family fun with hayrides, train rides and gem panning.
