The Davie County Enterprise Record is an amalgam of three newspapers that date back to 1899. The Republican-leaning Davie Record operated literally across the street from the Democratic Mocksville Enterprise until their merger in 1958. The resulting Davie County Enterprise Record merged with the Cooleemee Journal in 1971 to operate as the lone newspaper in the county. The newspaper has a circulation of 8,200 in a county of 14,000 homes. The Enterprise Record operates as a traditional newspaper of record. The newspaper's leased office is at 171 South Main Street across from the Davie County Courthouse in the county seat of Mocksville. Davie County is a largely rural community with three small incorporated towns, Mocksville, Cooleemee and Bermuda Run.
