Vass, NC is another town that the railroad built in the northern section of Moore County, North Carolina. Vass was primarily a rural, pastoral place until the Seaboard Airline Railroad came to town in the late 1800's. Originally settled by F D Byrd and known as Bynum, the town was soon named Winder, after an official for the Raleigh and Augusta Railroad.

The name was officially adopted in 1892, named after Major William Worrell Vass, the paymaster for the Raleigh and Gaston railroad and an official in the Seaboard Airline, Chatham, and Raleigh and Augusta Railroads (which would all later be merged into the CSX Corporation).  The town incorporated in 1907.  Once the railroad came to Vass, the production of farmed goods and exports made the town grow. Agriculture has long been a primary industry here, and once tobacco crops were planted, it really took off.

Vass has long been the gateway for soldiers who live here, to get to Ft Bragg through Spring Lake. Highway 690 crosses business Hwy 1 at the Main St crossroads in Vass by Miller's Family restaurant.  Today Vass is home to around 1,000 residents, and is still mainly a rural agricultural, residential and pastoral community. The town and outlying areas have started to gain attention, over the last few years, as a nice bedroom community for commuters that work in Raleigh and Research Triangle Park.
