Dallas in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Juliette Abbey Peak Fowler
(May 8, 1837 - June 4, 1889)
After the deaths of her husband and children in the early 1860s, Juliette Peak Fowler lived in Dallas and was active in local charitable causes. Committed to orphans and elderly women during her life, she provided for their benevolent care in her will. Under the direction of her sister, Sarah Peak Harwood, the Juliette Fowler Homes began in 1892. Transferred to the Disciples of Christ Church in 1903, the homes continue to reflect the goals and ideas of their founder.
