Historic Places


There are 223 historic properties in and around the city of Davis as identified in the Historic Property Data File Historic Resources Inventory (HRI), maintained by the State Office of Historic Preservation; this includes properties that are listed in the [WWW]National Register. Some of these buildings can be seen on the [WWW]Davis Historic Bike Tour, and the [WWW]Davis Historical Society is an excellent information resource. For Historic Resources in Davis, see [WWW]City of Davis Cultural Resources. For the city's three traditional (historic) neighborhoods see Neighborhood Associations.

Please be sure to read our Town History to see how these properties figure into local lore, why some of the names you see around town appear so frequently, and to learn about some of our more recent history.

Also, please take a look at the oldest surviving buildings, some of which are not listed in this entry.
