Marker Text Built between 1908 and 1914 for the family of Ralph W. Bowden (1873-1954), this home features leaded glass windows and steeply pitched gables with flaring eaves. Bowden, a Granbury merchant, served as a city councilman and established an early telephone system for the area. The home was sold in 1914 to Perry H. Kennon (1864-1927), who served as Hood county tax assessor for ten years. The home stands as a reflection of Granbury's years of growth and prominence.
