Davis grew into a Southern Pacific Railroad depot built in 1868. It was then known as “Davisville”, named after Jerome C. Davis, a prominent local farmer. However, the post office at Davisville shortened the town name to “Davis” in 1907. The name stuck, and the city of Davis was incorporated on March 28, 1917.

Davis boasts a bike-friendly community. There are numerous city’s bike and pedestrian paths. More info online the Davis California Bike Map

Since launching in September 2004, KDRT – kdrt.org – has had tremendous impact in and around Davis, CA–a vibrant community located between San Francisco and Sacramento–home to approximately 65,000 people, not including about 5,000 University of California students living on campus. The first low-power FM (LPFM) station to be launched within a public-access television center, noncommercial KDRT has since advised numerous LPFM startups. Since our launch, we’ve trained more than 70 community members in radio production, many of whom now serve as KDRT’s volunteer programmers and staff members.
