Scovell, 220 Owens Street S, (LL)

This Italianate/Eastlake house was apparently built for Lewellen C. Scovell. In 1896 Alexander Daue bought the property and lived here with his wife Ida Mae Turner Daue until their new home was built. The Daues owned the property until 1945; during that time it was probably the residence of another Daue family member, Earle Daue and his wife Dorothy. In 1945 the property was sold to Bernard and Bessie Zobel and the lot was divided; the east 60 feet of the lot were sold to Roy and Naomi Shaw in 1949. (See 1978 photograph.)
