The home affiliated with Davie, who had a history of service in education, politics, and the military, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Renovation work decades later, taking place in three phases, is restoring his only house still standing to its glory.
Browning proposed remembering Davie as more than the founding father status of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He included Davie’s contribution to the Great Compromise at the Constitutional Convention. This contribution was made possible by the educational experience at Princeton, which for Davie yielded academic achievement.
