Significance

The Doggett Jackson House was designed by Charles Jacobs and constructed around 1967. The house was designed for graphic designer Jane Doggett, who collaborated with Jacobs on the design of the house. The property, which overlooks the Norwalk Reservoir, was acquired by Jane D. Doggett in 1963. The original house had an indoor pool with a waterfall.

At some point before 1982, the separate garage was converted into a guest studio. In 1982, Leonard and Claire L. Tow acquired the property. An addition consisting of a vestibule, a sunroom, a porch, and a deck was constructed in 1983. In 1985, a two-car attached garage was completed. In 1986, a pool was constructed. Sometime after 1988, a 24'x16' greenhouse addition was completed.
