Significance: The house contributes to the significance of the William and Lucina Bowe Ranch. It is an important reflection of the site's role in the social and agricultural development of the lower Big Hole Valley, having served as both the Bowe family's home and part of their hotel business. The house also has a direct association with William and Lucina Bowe, individuals significant in local history for their part in the early settlement of the lower Big Hole Valley and the founding and development of the town of Melrose. And finally, the house stands as an example of vernacular residential architecture from the turn-of-the-century.
