Burnsville is located on US Hwy 72 and State Hwy 365
the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway
Burnsville was settled in 1832 and is named after one of the first settlers, Jeremiah Burns.
The official Town Charter was adopted later in 1858. Burnsville was a bustling little "railroad town" back
then. Transportation is still the hub of action in the Town now. While the railroad has steadfastly remained,
it has been joined by a four lane highway (US 72) and the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
