About this project

The historic Dowling House built in 1896 has one of the most robust histories of any home or building in north central Florida. Once on the counties list for demolition the home of Thomas Dowling, the founder of live oak and builder of Florida's first water works is now a full service bar & grill. The Dowling House provides the residents of the Suwannee river valley a place to "eat drink & hangout". Our goal is to incorporate the history of Suwannee county and preserve the house and feel of dining in a historic home all while providing our guest great live music & entertainment that the Suwannee river valley is known for. Please pledge to help reopen the Dowling House and preserve not only the house but returning the only outdoor dining and entertainment venue in Suwannee county.

Risks and challenges

Our toughest challenges will be in the permitting process to allow for commercial business to again be permitted in the Dowling House.

together with your pledge and support we can work thru any challenges and make the Dowling House the place it once was to our community.
