Neighborhood Features & Businesses

Old East Davis is also home to a few other unique housing cooperatives, businesses and other features.



SPCA Thrift Store

920 Third Street

The Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or YCSPCA, was founded in 1974 by a small group of dedicated people committed to improving the lives of animals in the area. Through the years, we have grown and expanded our programs to help better serve the animals, and people, of Yolo County. Through adoption events, public education and outreach, and active promotion of the benefits of spaying and neutering, Yolo County SPCA strives to provide a better future for the people and pets in our community.



Davis Bike Collective

1221 ½ fourth Street

The Davis Bicycle Collective is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit community bicycle organization. We provide a public D.I.Y. shop where folks share tools, skills, and knowledge about bike maintenance and repair. Our aim is to empower confident and committed cyclists through education and community building, and to encourage more cyclists by making bikes and bike maintenance, fun, safe, and accessible for everyone.



 J Street Co-op

234 J Street

J Street Co-op is one of the cooperative houses in Davis. Both J Street and its sibling co-ops, Cornucopia Corner Co-op and Sunwise, are managed by the Solar Community Housing Association, a non-profit organization whose board is comprised mainly of current and former J Street, Cornucopia Corner Co-op, Sunwise, and Domes community members. J Street Co-op is in Old East Davis in a house built in the 1920s. The house was the former location of the Davis Art Center and was converted back to housing through a self-help remodeling effort that included raising the roof and adding additional living space.



Cornucopia Co-op Corner

SW corner of J Street and Third Street

On August 2, 2010, Solar Community Housing Association moved two historic homes from 311 and 315 B St to 3rd and J St where they have been retrofitted as a green, affordable cooperative. After the makeover, both houses were certified for occupancy as an 8-bedroom cooperative.


Friends Meeting House

345 L Street

Together with all Quakers worldwide, we believe that each individual can commune with the divine without need of clergy or doctrine. We have no professional clergy, and each person present is responsible for the quality of the worship. We are very active in the community and we support peace, ecological, and social justice activities at the local, state, national and international level.


Street Mandala

On the street at the intersections of Fourth and K Streets

On April 6th 2014, Old East Davis neighbors gathered together to paint a mandala at the intersection of 4th & K Streets based on a design created by local artist Mark Rivera with community input. The idea was to take pride in caring for a shared space. The circular mural is 40 feet across and its design reflects the bicycle-friendly nature of the town
