Davis Funeral Chapel in Leavenworth

Davis Moulden's great-great-grandfather, J.B. Davis, started burying people in 1855, about six years before Kansas became a state, which makes Davis Funeral Chapel the oldest business still operating in the state or, at the very least, one of the oldest.

Davis Moulden reflects on his days as and undertaker in Leavenworth. Moulden's namesake, J.B. Davis, started the business in 1855 shortly after arriving in Kansas Territory.
