Historical Information

The pioneer Juneau Davis family lived in Juneau over forty years, making contributions in business, art and community leadership. J.Montgomery Davis was one of Juneauís early settlers and built a home at 202 Sixth Street in what was then a dense woods. There were no streets, lights or water and all lumber had to be carried to the building site. The Davis family built portions of Sixth Street so that horse and wagons could reach their home. They bought and improved property nearby and added to the growth and development of Juneau. This house was built in its present location in 1915 by the Davis family and was used as a rental.
