Scottish and Scots-Irish immigrants settled in the state's southern Piedmont. In Mecklenburg County, they had built seven churches by 1770 which stand today; farms; and founded Davidson College. Today, the farms are largely taken over by developments, shopping centers, and highways. Miller describes one farm that has been preserved by the county.
