Notes
Survey number HABS IL-303
Building/structure dates: 1840 initial construction
Significance: The Mowry Brown house is a ca. 1840 residential building. ... It is apparently one of the oldest surviving structures in Winnebago County and embodies the distinctive characteristics of the Greek Revival Style in a comparatively small vernacular expression. ... The house is of potential historical significance due to its association with Mowry Brown, who was one of the earliest carpenters and homebuilders in the county and whose activities are frequently mentioned in local histories...
