About Davidson College Tours

Another great way to discover Davidson College is with their Senior-to-Senior sessions.

Davidson College and Town History

The town of Davidson dates back to 1837, when a group of Presbyterians founded Davidson College, naming it for a local Revolutionary War hero. The advent of the college prompted the community’s development around it, which grew into the typical small railroad town. The town of Davidson is similarly engaging, making Davidson College tours even more worthwhile. With its proximity to Charlotte, Davidson has the benefit of a significant big city culture in a small, quiet town. Downtown is populated with great restaurants that focus on farm-to-table food, a year-round farmer’s market, and many quaint shops for everyday needs. Davidson also sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Norman, which is within walking distance of downtown.
