MOWE HOUSE. Dr. Mowe may have been the original owner of this house located at the corner of Adams and Water Streets. It was one of the few buildings on the waterfront to avoid being burned by the fire of 1886. This two and one-half story wooden clapboarded home has a gable roof with Ionic columns and traditional five bayed front. The Greek Revival portico, which had been added about 1905. has been removed.

EWT, 2010:

73) The Mowe House 1 Adams Street, Federal. As Dr. Mowe was in Eastport during the British occupation, he may have been the original owner. Dr. Robert Mowe was a noted businessman as well as an early Eastport physician. The house is a two-and-a-half-story wooden clapboard home with Ionic columns and traditional five-bayed front. During the fire of 1886 Hiram Blanchard and his factory crew set up a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"deadline\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" to stop the fire. They were able to keep the fire from spreading to the north side of Adams Street, where the Mowe and 0.1. O\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'Dell houses still stand today.
