Davidson

3.5
Davidson is a town in south central Saskatchewan, Canada. It is located 104km southeast of Saskatoon beside provincial highway 11, in the rural municipality of Arm River. It is located almost exactly halfway between Saskatoon and Regina, and was a popular stopping-off point for travellers before Highway 11 was rerouted east of the town.HistoryIn 1902 Colonel Andrew Duncan Davidson, an enthusiastic entrepreneur from Glencoe, Ontario, came to Saskatchewan in hopes of creating a 'midway' settlement between the cities of Regina and Saskatoon. With agriculture as one of his driving passions, Davidson through the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company purchased 700000acre from the railway and the federal government in an area where the soil was particularly suitable for grain farming. Davidson organized a train route that travelled from Chicago to Saskatoon; making one stop in Davidson on the way. This train route brought American bankers, entrepreneurs and newspapermen in hopes of starting up new businesses in the area. With the expansion of the community underway, Davidson also managed to sell more than 180000acre of land in the area.Within a short period of time, Davidson, which was declared the name of the community, was nicknamed the 'Midway Town' because of its central location. On November 15, 1906, Davidson was officially declared a town.During World War II the Royal Canadian Air Force built and operated No. 23 Elementary Flying Training School as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan on a site 7 km southeast of Davidson. The school opened on 9 November 1942 and moved to Yorkton, Saskatchewan on 29 January 1945. The airfield was located at and should not be confused with Davidson Municipal Airport which is adjacent to the town.
