Downtown Davidson insurance agency J.J. Wade & Associates is moving into its new home this weekend, in the newly constructed Mooney’s Corner building on South Main Street, next to Town Hall. The $2.7 million, 4-story building at 212 S. Main St. is right next door Wade’s former office in the historic building at 208 S. Main.
Wade will occupy most of the building, including the ground floor. Meanwhile, the owner of the historic building next door is now looking for tenants.

Davidson’s efforts over the past couple of years to incorporate public health impacts into planning are in the spotlight this week as the town hosts the first ever Southeast Regional Health Impact Assessment Summit. About 65 professionals in public health and planning began arriving Wednesday afternoon for the conference at Davidson College and other venues.
“It’s huge,” said Katherine Hebert, the town’s Davidson Design 4 Life coordinator. “This is the first regional health impact assessment symposium of its kind, much less in the Southeast.”

Hard to believe that on July 18, 1988, the first residents moved into The Pines retirement community in Davidson, at the end of Avinger Lane. The facility became home that day to Grace Dean of Charlotte, Frannie Caldwell of Davidson and Nancy Piephoff of Concord. For members of the Davidson College Presbyterian Church who were instrumental in creating this retirement community, it was a dream come true.

Twenty-five years ago, a determined group of Davidson residents, some with ties to Davidson College Presbyterian Church and Davidson College, saw a long-held dream come to fruition: The grand-opening of The Pines at Davidson. It was one of the area’s first continuing care retirement communities and offered something previously not available here: a retirement option that didn’t require moving away from Davidson.
