The Chown residence was built in 1912 during the pre-World War One land boom in Edmonton and the development of the Highlands area as an affluent community. The large two and one-half-storey house, with stately wrap around veranda, balcony and gables, was designed by William Moorehouse, a prominent architect in the Edmonton area. Moorehouse designed a number of features in Edmonton during this period. The Chowns were a prominent business family, operating a very successful jewellery store in the city of Edmonton. Thus, the Chown residence makes the historical connection to early real estate and commerce in Edmonton.
