14504 Elm St. Historic Upper Marlboro Home For Sale
 
14504 Elm St

 

Known as the Jarboe-Bowie House, 14504 Elm St has deep roots and history in the Upper Marlboro area of Prince George County.

The Bowie house was owned by one of the most prominent of Maryland families. Washington Augusta Bowie was the godson of President George Washington. Oden Bowie and his son Robert Bowie were both Governors of Maryland. Their relative Bezin Bowie, was Governor of Tennessee.

Much of what is now Washington DC was once called Bowieville. Colonel Ninean Beall, who once owned the land where the Bowie house now sits, also owned the land where the White House is located. He sold the land to the federal government to build the Presidents mansion for the new Federal City. Colonel James 'Jim' Bowie, perhaps the most famous of the Bowie family members, died at the Alamo in 1836.

Today the Jarboe-Bowie house at 14504 Elm St  is a shell of its former self. In need of total rehab, the Prince George County Planning Commission has authorized a $52,000 grant to be used towards the purchase of this home with the purchasers then being responsible for it's rehabilitation.

The Jarboe- Bowie house is located on one of Upper Marlboro's beautiful residential streets in the historic area and within walking distance of downtown, the lake and county government buildings.

Offered at $189,000 The Jarboe-Bowie House at 14504 Elm St. is the perfect project for those who not only take pride in the history of our nation but want to live that history as well..
