Edward Power House

This Victorian-style residence was built in 1894 for pioneer cattleman Edward Power, his wife, and his five daughters. The oldest daughter, Genevieve, married James William Stevenson, a farmer and rancher. Stevenson became a state legislator and Genev­ieve Power Stevenson was a tireless civic worker. She was organizer of the Guadalupe Victoria Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revo­lution in 1934, and in 1959 she donated her house to that organization, the Williams P. Rogers Chapter of the United Daughters of the Con­federacy, and to the James W. Fannin Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. These three organizations still own, maintain, and headquarter in the Power Home. RTHL-1966.
