He was also fundamental in the foundation of the First National Bank of Tucson. He, like many others in the territory, was interested in the mining business and the boom towns, he invested heavily in several mining situations. Davis served as a Pima County Supervisor and in the Territorial Legislature. He became interested in the public school system and at intervals from 1872 until 1902 he served on the School Board of Tucson District 1.

Davis Elementary

The Davis school, built in 1901 was originally constructed with only five rooms, but has grown substantially since then. The age of the buildings though has contributed to something else though, to the paranormal visitors that frequent the school. At dawn the figure of a woman appears in the classrooms, but only at dawn. Parents have felt someone touching them on the shoulder.

Students have heared eerie music in the halls, and doors that are locked have become unlocked and open on their own. Students have seen water faucets, non-sensored faucets, turn on slowly until they reach full blast, and then turn off by themselves.
