This building was the first site used by the I.O.O.F. in Kansas. The cornerstone was laid on May 14, 1867. Later renamed Davis Hall, the upper floor was used for local political meetings.

In 1975 the premises were included in the inventory of historic sites by the Kansas State Historical Society.

Since 1911 the building has been the location of one of the states [sic] oldest continuous business establishments, the Davis Funeral Chapel, founded in 1855 by James B. Davis, followed by Thaddeus Davis, former mayor, James C. "Big Hearted Jim" Davis, Margaret Davis Moulden, first woman elected to public office in Leavenworth and Clarence E. "Pete" Moulden.

In 1988 the Davis Funeral Chapel, Inc. is under the management of the fifth generation, Davis T. Moulden.
