History

Davie was formed in 1836 from Rowan. It was named in honor of William Richardson Davie, a distinguished Revolutionary soldier, a member of the Federal Convention of 1787, governor of North Carolina, special envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to France, and one of the founders of the University of North Carolina. It is in the central section of the State and is bounded by Davidson, Rowan, Iredell, Yadkin, and Forsyth counties. The present area is 264 square miles .... In 1837 the court was ordered to be held at Mocksville. Mocksville, incorporated in 1839, is the county seat.

..., beginning at the junction of the North and South Yadkin rivers; thence up the South Yadkin river, to the Iredell county line; and all that part of the present county of Rowan, lying and being north of said river, shall hereafter constitute a separate and distinct county, to be called and known by the name of Davie, in honor of the revolutionary patriot, William R. Davie; ....

In 1925 an act to make certain and define the boundary line between Davie and Forsyth was passed.

That the Yadkin River be and the same is hereby made, fixed and designated as the true and correct boundary line between the counties of Davie and Forsyth.

above quoted from The Formation of the North Carolina Counties 1663-1943, by David Leroy Corbitt; published by NC Department of Cultural Resources; pages 88-89.
