Footville is a small unincorporated community in southern Yadkin County, North Carolina, USA. The community, in the Deep Creek Township, is on Lone Hickory Road, just east of the community of Lone Hickory, North Carolina and near the Davie County and Iredell County lines to the south. The community is named for Major James H. Foote, who settled in the area about 1807.[1]

Footville is in the Yadkinville ZIP code area (27055).

In the early 19th century, Footville was a stopping place on the stagecoach road that ran from Salem west to Wilkesboro and the half-way point between Salisbury and Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Guests stayed at what was known as the Footville Inn, which was first built by Foote. According to family tradition, Andy Laugenour acquired the house in 1863, trading a slave girl for the property. The home, which still stands, once served as the community's only store and post office. The Laugenour House, a brick home built in 1853, is also in the community.

An 1895 atlas lists the community's population at 20.[2]
