About Davis, CA
Before 1907, Davis was called Davisville, after the local prominent farmer and one of California’s earliest pioneers, Jerome C. Davis. In 1907, a mere shortening of “Davisville” by the post office gave the town its newest name.
From there, Davis became widely known for its contributions to a booming agriculture industry in the form of animal husbandry and veterinary sciences.
Toward the west, Davis is only a few hours away from the lively City of San Francisco and its Golden Gates. The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range lies to the east and was the focus of the much-celebrated California gold rush.
