SERVPRO Technicians Can Recover Burnt Belongings and Structure after a Property Fire

Mocksville is a small residential town in the Davie County region of North Carolina. While it is home to a few residents, some 5,051, there is a well-storied history behind Mocksville with over 13 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Most of these buildings are preserved as examples of nineteenth and early twentieth-century architecture, although the town's founding as a settlement pre-dates the revolutionary war. The earliest records of settlers in Davie County date back to the mid-eighteenth century with several Dutch and British colonists who traveled down from the Yadkin River. Mocks Old Field is one of the earliest dated townships in the area, which was renamed Mocksville by the early nineteenth century. Davie's wider county is named after William R. Davie, who was an influential general during the revolutionary war. Despite its relatively small populace, the town has been home to key historical figures like explorer Daniel Boone and Hinton Rowan Helper, author of the abolitionist text, The Impending Crisis. As well as historical figures, Mocksville and Davie County have produced sportsmen such as Caleb and Cody Martin of the NBA, NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer, and Major League Baseball player Whit Merrifield. 

Modern-day Mocksville has been the center of historical preservation by taking part in the Main Street Program, an initiative designed to preserve the architecture of smaller, historic downtowns. There is a strong current of independent shops, crafts, and stores that line the downtown and delicious restaurants that are hidden gems for residents. The varied terrain and agreeable climate have seen Mocksville, and broader North Carolina, become a wine destination with various New World vineyards dotted across the land and the coast. There are over 185 wineries and 525 vineyards in this region of the United States. These include American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), which have unique soil properties, climates, and elevations that produce world-class wine-making grapes. Equally, there are Piedmont, coastal wines, and mountain wines within this diverse ecological area. If you are passing through Mocksville, a trip to the local vineyards offers a pretense free tasting tour of the local grapes and education on how wine-making techniques are developed and the properties that go into producing good grapes. Mocksville is home to many wineries that are more than happy to share their excellent product via tasting sessions. 

  • The RayLen Vineyards are a must-see spot in Mocksville that sits just off US Highway 158. The expansive vineyards house 35,000 grape vines that use traditional European grapes combined with the unique climate and soil structure of North Carolina. Part of the Yadkin Valley Appellation, the wine-tasting rooms are a fantastic opportunity to sample award-winning wines curated by vintner Steve Shepard. Frequent guest tours include a wine and chocolate tasting session and occasional live music. 
  • History buffs can enjoy The Davie County Courthouse, which was initially opened in 1909 and is a fine example of neo-classical architecture. The nearby former Davie County Jail is also listed among the register of historic places with its own 1839 architecture built around the same time as the town was incorporated into the United States. The Joppa Cemetary has the final resting place of many of the Boone family and is one of the oldest burial grounds in Davie County.
  • Pudding Ridge on Cornwallis Drive is a quaint golf course that makes the most of the surrounding natural beauty. The course itself is relatively short, with a quick pace between holes that make it well-suited to all skill levels. The fun courses are designed with affordability in mind while the course has been awarded best venue in Davie County in the recent past. Current social distancing measures are in place for all players.
