Erected in 1845, Glendower was given its name by the original owner, John Milton Williams, to honor the Welsh prince and hero, Owen Glendower. The house’s second illustrious owner was distinguished attorney, statesman, and Union general, Durbin Ward. The third and final owner, Ladora Scoville Owens, was a socialite and member of the DAR as well as the Warren County Historical Society. After Owen’s passing in 1944, the Warren County Historical Society purchased the property as its first home.
