Micaville was a main point on the Yancey Railroad carrying Mica and Feldspar minerals, along with fertilizer, building materials, livestock feed and steel spring wire. Due to damage from Hurricane Agnes and flooding from other storms most of the bridges , track and branches were destroyed. Engine number 40 now sits abandoned along 19E in Micaville, across the road from the Silver Bullet convenience store.
In the early 1900s, the Black Mountain Railroad later operating as the Yancey Railroad (YAN) transformed the economy from an agricultural-based into a mining community with later lumber harvesting adding into the economy.
Micaville Elementary School is operated by Yancey County Schools System.
