James H. Brandon was the son of John and Martha Brandon, who were actually the founders of Brandon, Florida. In 1876, James built a large 2-story home. His wife, Johanna, and their 7 children loved entertaining guests in their Folk Victorian southern mansion.
In 1901, William and Doc Estelle Brandon Varnedoe purchased the home. Edward Linsley bought it around 1912. From 1946 to 1955, his daughter’s family, the Walter Claytons, lived in it. In 1960, with financial backing from John "Rudy" Williams, Dick Stowers’s dream commenced when they purchased and converted the building into a funeral home. Mr. Stowers operated the Stowers Funeral home until he retired in the late 90s.
