Welcome to Davidson County, home of Nashville (Music City USA), the State Capitol.

      Davidson County was created in 1783 by an Act of the North Carolina
      legislature; named in honor of William Lee Davidson (ca. 1746-1781), colonial
      soldier, Revolutionary War officer in the North Carolina Third, Fourth and Fifth
      Regiments who was killed in action at the Battle of Cowans Ford on the
      Catawba River in North Carolina.
      Davidson County is located in Middle Tennessee, one of the state's three
      "grand divisions." Davidson County was formed in 1783 from Washington
