John Miburn Davis


Hiawatha, Kansas

I had this marked on my map from years ago when Sinbad and I traveled around but we never made it to this corner of Kansas.

Well now here Beans and I are.

I tried to copy the story from the online site here but was having too many problems.

At the bottom will be a link to the site and a repeat of my photos so it will make sense to you.

I think you will find it interesting.

I think I would have liked Mr. Davis

  1. What a hoot! I'd also drive to see this if I were within 50 miles of it. The headless statue was why I read the story...and I am glad I did!

  2. He sounds like he was a real ***hole..........

  3. I would LOVE to see this grave, I think that the weird things that people build are fascinating. John Davis had quite a fancy opinion of himself, I love his calling card "I'll thank you very kindly to mind your business" maybe I should get some of those.
    Not far from my house is a scaled down replica of the Taj Mahal that was built by a former Mayor of Toronto to honour his wife and daughter. Love all those strange ideas.
