Glenn-Dowe House

Glenn-Dowe House

Del Rio
Val Verde County, Texas
29 21.747' N 100 53.795' W

Text: Local contractor Daniel Glenn built this residence in 1900-01, incorporating a band of decorative brickwork in the design. He sold the property in 1901 to Bessie Chisum, a widow who married Luke Dowe in 1906. Dowe had a long career as a peace officer on the Texas-Mexican border, serving first with the frontier battalion of the Texas Rangers and later with the U. S. Customs service. The Dowes occupied this house for 50 years.
