The Davidson’s and their Scottish Roots
Davidson Cottage is the ancestral home of the Davidson’s of Harley-Davidson. William. C. Davidson left here with his family when they emigrated to America in 1857. William was the father of the three Davidson brothers who, along with Bill Harley founded the company. The cottage has been lovingly restored to how it would have been at the time of their emigration.
Visit the cottage during the Year of Stories Festival to find out how the Davidson family lived and worked in Angus before emigrating to America in 1857, and how and why the three brothers formed the famous company.
