North Davidson County, NC is made of several small communities including Wallburg, Midway, Arcadia, and Thomasville. Each community contributes individually to the county, and each is unique.

Wallburg did not incorporate until 2004, and has a little more than 3,000 residents and covers 5.6 square miles. It is named for North Carolina State Senator Sam W. Wall, who served in 1895. While it is located in Davidson County, it is bordered by Forsyth County on the north, and with the NC Highway 109 running largely through the town. In 1984, the historic George W. Wall House was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The house is one of the finest examples of late Victorian domestic architecture in Davidson County from 1896.

Midway's name is unique, as it is the midway point between Winston-Salem and Lexington. The town of Midway did not incorporate until 2006, has around 4,700 residents and covers 9 square miles. Originally the community, which now forms the center of modern Midway, was founded as "Eller", when the Eller train depot was constructed, labeled as such after members of the Eller family, which resided nearby. Until 2006, many maps still marked the area as "Eller", and many members of the Eller family still own land in Midway.

Arcadia is an unincorporated community and is located along NC Highway 150. The community is mostly residential with a few commercial establishments, including retail chain stores, banks and local businesses such as Arcadia Nursery, North Davidson Autoparts, and Weathervane Winery. The historic Hampton House, built around 1879 is located near Arcadia and in 1983, was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Thomasville is one of the larger cities within Davidson County, with more than 26,000 residents calling it home, covering almost 17 square miles. It is notable for its furniture industry. Thomasville was founded in 1852 and was built around the local railway system. Therefore, it has the oldest railroad depot in the state, and is located close by "The Big Chair." The city was named after John Warwick Thomas, who served the area as a NC State Representative in 1830, and by 1848 was a NC State Senator. He is responsible for bringing the railroad through Davidson County.
