History & History Related Items

Davison history:

Siblings, Debby, Andrew and Alson Seelye came to the area in 1836 and settled Seelyeville. Debby married Seth Wickers in 1848 and they founded another settlement, Wickers Corner. It grew and became a way station for the stagecoach lines. The post office there was known as Wickers Corners and also as Davison. In 1871, the railroad came through but bypassed Wickers Corner which led to its demise. When the new train depot was built just down the road, the post office left Wickers Corners and moved to its new home known as Davison Station. The town was named for Judge Norman Davison who was a large landowner in the area.

It was incorporated as a village on 20 May 1889 and later as a city in 1938
