Historical Information

The pioneer Juneau Davis family lived in Juneau over forty years, contributing leadership in business, art and the community. J. Montgomery 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. One of three houses built on Lot 2 between 1914 and 1918.
