Alton's own Miles Dewey Davis III now joins the historic landmarks the area has come to know and love. In the heart of Alton's entertainment district on West Third Street, visitors can find Davis lost in song with his trumpet in the middle of the Miles Davis Memorial Plaza. Created by the talented sculptor and life-time Davis fan, Preston Jackson, the bronze statue was born out of collaboration with the Alton Museum of History and Art, The Miles Davis Memorial Project and Pride Incorporated. 

This is the only statue of Miles Davis in the United States.
