Burnsville is an inhabited place.

Comment from Source:Morton, Oren Frederic. Annals of Bath County, Virginia:
"Adjacent to the Bullpasture valley, and just within the Bath line, is the Red Holes, or Burnsville, settlement. The earlier name is derived either from the reddish loam exposed to view in the sinkholes, or from the artificial licks, made by driving stakes into the ground, withdrawing them, and then filling the holes with salt.
