Learn more about Davidson

Davidson is located in Northern Mecklenburg County and is named for a local hero in the American Revolution, General William Lee Davidson. It was originally incorporated as the Town of Davidson College in 1879 by a group of Presbyterians. The town of Davidson officially came into being in 1891.

Davidson is a small, friendly, intellectually and culturally stimulating place to live. It has small-town ambience and charm with many nineteenth century homes but is near lakefront recreation and large-city amenities. Brick sidewalks, hanging flower baskets, and tree lined walks and streets characterize both the town and college. The population of Davidson is approximately 12,900.
Davidson College, central to life in the town, has buildings listed on the National Historic Register, a student body of more than 1,800. The campus is a designated arboretum. Recent notable alumni include NBA star, Steph Curry, who had a stellar collegiate basketball career with the Davidson College Wildcats.

The spirit of the arts and culture is alive surrounding Davidson College campus, with multiple venues for the community’s enjoyment.

In Davidson there are a variety of restaurants. An old fashion soda shop, an elegant French bistro, a bakery or a friendly café can please any palate, all with hometown services. The shops offer a wide range of abundant gifts, books, clothing, flowers, picture framing and fine art.

Davidson is also the home of internationally recognized sculptor Dr. Thomas F. Clark, a resident and former professor of Religion at the college. He started sculpting his famous gnomes in 1978 as a hobby and by 1985 the demand was so great he retired from teaching to sculpt full time.
