Meet Colonel Joseph B. Chiles. This leading man was an original founder of Davis, California and in 1855 he was actually the first individual to purchase an interment at the Davis Cemetery and Arboretum thus initiating that cemetery district.
Nowadays, the year 1855 is used as the name for Gallery 1855 at the cemetery district that features internationally renowned artists.
