Edneyville is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Henderson County, North Carolina, United States. Its population was 2,367 as of the 2010 census.

A post office called Edneyville has been in operation since 1828. Rev. Samuel Edney served as postmaster. He and his brother Asa were the two earliest settlers in the area. Samuel had 12 children and Asa had eight. Their descendants settled in the neighboring area, which led to the name Edneyville.

Since 1998 Edneyville is home of the North Carolina Justice Academy, a division of the North Carolina Department of Justice. The institution is currently located on the grounds and facilities of the former Edneyville High School.
