The Isabelle Jones House is a two story wooden Colonial Revival. The house sits on a level triangular lot covered primarily by lawn with trees and planting around the periphery. Isabelle Jones was the widow of Edwin Austin, the son of Peter Cushman Jones, founding partner of C. Brewer, co-founder of the Bank of Hawaii, treasurer of Punahou School and Minister of Finance under Queen Lilluoukalani. She built the house in 1924; the 1925 Business Directory shows her residence as 71 Dowsett. Isabelle Jones kept a life interest in the property and her daughter Catherine Thompson the remainderment until 1945.
