Significance: The one-story wood frame house located along Main Street in Covallis, Montana is historically significant because of its association with James H. Cowan, an early pioneer of the Bitterroot Valley and an early resident of Corvallis. Cowan, a prosperous landowner and farmer, built the house at 1012 Main Street and lived there until his death in 1905. Cowan remained a prominent and prosperous citizen of Corvallis throughout his life in Montana. The house, a hall and parlor style dwelling, constitutes a good example of plank construction, and might be considered one of the few remaining residences of early Corvallis.
