Davidson is a picturesque college town 20 miles north of Charlotte. It boasts walking trails, greenways and a small town feel and encourages health and fitness. The Town Green hosts summer concerts and a fresh food market opens on Saturdays during the spring, summer and fall. This Lake Norman town was also the 2013 recipient of the NC Great Main Street Award.
The name of the town and its college came from a Revolutionary War brigadier general. Although the town was also situated along the railroad, it was the college which formed and developed the village center into what it is even today. As was true of other towns along the railroad in the area, textile and cotton mills were prevalent in the early 1900’s. The industry caused much of the town’s initial growth. Across the street from the college a row of brick store fronts housed general stores, hardware, barbershops, bank and post office. Eventually with the construction of major highways residents shopped elsewhere for the most part. Today the store fronts still stand as they did 100 years ago. And residents and visitors of today enjoy the boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and bookstores.
