Historical Information

The pioneer Juneau Davis family lived in Juneau over forty years, contributing leadership in business, art and the community. J.Mongomery Davis was one of the Juneauís early settlers and built a home at 202 Sixth Street in what was then a dense wood. There were no streets, lights or water. 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 constructed (1912) on or near the Capital School site and moved to its present location (1927) by the Davises. For many years it was the home of Cedric Davis, son of J.M. and Frances.
