This asymmetrical brick and stucco Spanish Colonial Revival design, as especially expressed in the fenestration and attenuated Solomonic columns gracing its entrance bay, gently breaks out of its rectangular mass on its east end into a polygonal bay. The designers of the two-story house are better known for their later work, Thomas Jefferson High School ( SA131). Mary A. Stowers was the widow of George Arthur Stowers, who owned a chain of furniture stores in Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama.
