We recently received this information from the Temple Terrace Preservation Society about a historic house that is up for sale with the following disclaimer: “Normally, I don’t send out information on Temple Terrace homes for sale but based on what this house means to the history of Temple Terrace and the area (how many houses have their own vintage postcard?), it’s the least I can do.”
The house for sale is the Cody Fowler House located at 313 Sleepy Hollow Avenue in Temple Terrace. Built in 1922, the house was one of eight original Mediterranean Revival style homes designed for the developers of Temple Terrace by architect M. Leo Elliot. The house was built for Cody Fowler, attorney and former president of the American Bar Association. His mother, Maud Fowler, was one of the founders of Temple Terrace and served as Vice-Mayor. Fowler Avenue, in Tampa, is named for the Fowler family.
