Located in a spacious, Federal/Classical style home built in 1870, where much of the original "Benji" movie was filmed, Dowell House has a rich history and an elegant ambiance to share with you. Step back into an era when life was genteel and slow. Linger over a full, fresh breakfast served with china, crystal and silver in the formal dining room. Relax, and have that second cup of coffee or sip tea in the sunroom or on the shady deck. Explore McKinney's old Town Square with its many art galleries, antique and crafts shops. Drive along quaint streets lined with turn of the century homes; or enjoy one of the many historical museums and sites in the area, yet be close to the many fine restaurants and shopping facilities in the metropolitan Dallas/Fort Worth area. Please feel free to explore our site and contact us with any questions.
