This large, stone house, built in 1907, was the “town home” of Lucinda Dovel Bowers and her husband Charles. A wooden boardwalk was built from their home in the “country”, about half a mile west of here, so Lucinda could walk to town and not soil her dress. Lucinda was the youngest child of Jacob Dovel who gave each of his five children a 160-acre farm with a brick house upon their marriage. Lucinda’s house was said to be the biggest and fanciest. Three of the brick homes still exist: Lucinda’s at 380 W. Columbus Street, Frank Dovel’s at 50 Hill Road South and Olive Dovel Bowen’s at 1141 Refugee Road.
