Lost Cove is a ghost town in Yancey County North Carolina. Located on the gorge above the Nolichucky River on the Tennessee - North Carolina border, a boundary dispute and its isolation reportedly made it attractive to moonshiners in the 19th century. It was settled shortly before the Civil War and the last family left in 1958. [1]
