Town Icon: The Redneck Lawnmower!
The Town of Davis has had an icon in front of our old building that has drawn many a person to stop, giggle and have their picture taken with it - The Redneck Lawnmower!
One of the most valued residents in town, Howard Olson owned the property when it first was displayed as a joke by his friend Dick. Howard has been called home since that time and we all miss him terribly. But the Redneck Lawn Mower still stands as a tribute to the friendship shared and still brings a little giggle to Dick when you ask him about it. (Go ahead ask him, he just may tell you the story). In tribute to their friendship you can have a one of a kind t-shirt, or give one to your favorite Redneck!
