Historical Background - Stanley Davis received a building permit for a one-story brick house with brick foundation and a garage at this address in 1916. A 1925 newspaper article indicates that Stanley Davis, 56 years old, died at his home, 1913 9th Street as a result of complications arising from diphtheria. Mr. Davis was born in Hardeman County, Tennessee, in 1868. He moved to Greeley with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joel E. Davis, in 1873. He married Lida Harrington of Fort Collins in 1891. Mr. Davis was interested in cattle raising and the development of irrigation systems throughout the state during his early career, later being occupied with his farms and a large loan and investment business he and his father started. Mrs. Lida Davis continued that business and is listed at this address through at least 1960. In 1970, Johan Johensen, director of Business Services for School District #6, lived here.
