Long Description:

The road extending one mile south traverses a spur which projects into
Pine Mountain Valley and terminates in a knob 1395 feet
elevation above sea level overlooking a spectacular
spread of the valley floor.

The knob was named for two pioneer Harris County settlers,
Lewis & James Dowdell of Virginia ancestry who settled here in 1828.

The statue of FDR shows the leg braces on the outside of his pants. This was the only place he felt comfortable to do this. While sojourning at The Little White House near Warm Springs,
Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32d President of the United States, found
momentary rest and relaxation contemplating the wide expanse of
land and sky as viewed from the summit of Dowdell's Knob.
