Davis Block, Circa 1868, Jonesboro

The corner building here is identified as the Davis Block. It’s likely among the oldest surviving commercial structures built after the Battle of Jonesboro left much of the town in disarray. Other early storefronts are visible in this view along Main Street.

Cannon & Evans Drug Company and Evans Dry Goods were among the Davis Block’s best known tenants over the years.
