Davis Business Block

Address: 5600-5678 Wadsworth Blvd

Graves Blacksmith Shop, built in late 1860s, was the first building at this site. It was razed to service a new mode of transportation, "the iron horse." A. L. Davis completed the first portion of his building in April, 1916. It was occupied by Davis Garage, a show room for Dodge and Chevrolet automobiles on the ground floor, and apartments on the second story. A second addition was built in 1921 and a third addition, minus a second floor, was constructed in 1927. The building exists in 1994 and is named for this enterprising entrepreneur, A.L. Davis.
