Davis, CA Community Information

The City of Davis was incorporated in 1917.   Formerly the home of a group of Patwin Indians, and early settlers include Jerome C. and Mary A. Davis, the son-in-law and daughter of Joseph B. Chiles, one of California's trail-blazing pioneers, whose cattle interests in the area began in 1849.  By 1868, the Davis' moved to Sacramento after selling some 7,000 acres of the Davis ranch for $80,000 to developers of the California Pacific Railroad.

Today Davis is home to the largest of the University of California's ten campuses at 5,300 acres.  UC Davis embraces all major academic disciplines including Engineering, Law, Medicine and is noted as one of the top universities in the country for Veterinary and Agriculture Educations. 

  Davis is a popular place to bicycle, Davis was an innovator in accommodating bicyclists including wide, separate bike paths on the UC campus and bike lanes on the city roads. The bikeway system quickly became fully institutionalized, and all new subdivisions since the late 1960s have been required to add to the existing system. This has given Davis a claim to fame and often being referred to as "The Bicycle Capital of the U.S".
