Northwest Davidson County was the sight of Yadkin College. Founded by Henry Walser, the Methodist Protestant Church opened the doors to Yadkin College in 1856. Yearly commencement services provided both students and the local community with two days of entertainment. Attendees enjoyed the excitement of sermons, speeches, contests, literary presentations and promenades. Yadkin College opened as a male institution but became co-educational in 1878.
