Davie County was named for William Davie, a Revolutionary War patriot and founder of the University of North Carolina. The county seat is Mocksville. Community pride is evident throughout Davie County. It's a great place to raise children and a quiet community for retirement. Though largely rural, Davie County is developing a growing suburban population attracted to its lower cost of living, top-rated school system, low tax rate and easy access to large cities. Located in the western part of the 12-county Piedmont Triad - the Heartland of North Carolina - this county personifies what quality living is all about. New developments nestle comfortably next to rolling farmlands. Davie County also has nationally recognized retirement communities, and has been named an ideal place to retire.
