April 7, 1995
The Herman Davis monument in Manila (Mississippi County) was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The one-acre Herman Davis State Park honors Private Herman Davis, a native of Manila who is considered one of the top heroes of World War I. The original statue, vandalized in 1967, was replaced with a duplicate using the same type of granite used in the shaft and base of the monument. In 1999, the memorial site received new landscaping, off-street parking areas, sidewalks, and park benches. It is fully accessible to all visitors.
