Davie's settlement origins in the eighteenth century cannot be seen in its extant buildings, with the possible exception of the William Frost house which family traditions maintain was built in 1762. Kirk Franklin Mohney in 1985 toured Davie County and photographed buildings judged to be over fifty years old with some degree of original architectural integrity. His findings were published as The Historic Architecture of Davie County. Although much of the county's architectural legacy has been preserved, much also has been lost to time and development.
