Mayo Davis Home

This corner lot is legally described as Lot 43 of the Cater Subdivision. This two-story house was built by Mayo Davis in the spring and summer of 1939 and the family moved into their new home in September. The Davis family had purchased 911 Evergreen and had been living there until their new home was completed. Mayo Davis founded Davis Oil Company in 1946 which quickly expanded to become a Shell Oil Distributor in 1949. Two generations later, Davis Oil Company has received the Three Star Award from the Georgia Department of Agriculture for being the first producer, wholesaler, and retailer for fuel in Georgia.
