Description
Incorporated in 1885, Davis was born of the lumber boom. Today the area is a mecca for mountain bikers and rafters. Ten miles south, Canaan Valley Resort State Park is an all-year resort and conference center. Downhill and cross-country skiing are popular in winter; golf on an 18-hole championship course, hiking, tennis and swimming prevail during the summer. Deer often cross the golf course early and late in the day. Other privately operated resorts and camping facilities also are available in the Canaan (ka-NAIN) valley.
Of historical significance is the Fairfax Stone, 7 miles north of town off US 219, which marked the western boundary of Lord Fairfax's lands. Under the terms of the grant issued by the king of England, Lord Fairfax owned all the lands between the Potomac and the Rappahannock rivers, and this marker served as the base point for the boundary between Maryland and Virginia (now West Virginia).
