Biography/History"Spanish Mission style is easily identifiable because it looks like the Alamo. An outstanding example of Spanish Mission style is the 1931 house at 401 Seventh Avenue S., with its white stucco walls and distinctive gables. Even the garage was built to match." - Fargo's Heritage, by Norene A. Roberts, p. 28.
The house was built for Arthur W. Fowler in 1931. Fowler was the Vice President of Dakota National Bank, a member of the state senate, and states attorney of Cass County. Following his death the house was used by the Sisters of Service during the 1940s and 1950s.
