A History of Davidson


A History of Davidson Davidson College and the Town of Davidson share their origin, back in the 1800's. Since then, Davidson College has become a nationally-recognized and prestigious college and the Town of Davidson is one with a rich history and an identity separate from the other towns in the region. Our guests today have compiled written history and personal accounts from citizens to create a new book that tells the story about Davidson, and they join us to talk about the history and why their book is just the start of a wider community conversation.
