C.D. Bowman House     1895-1900
629 Madison Avenue
C.D. Bowman, a prominent Ormo pharmacist, built this superb clapboard and shingle-clad Queen Anne style building which is Omro's grandest nineteenth century residence, shortly after receiving a large inheritance from a relative. Bowman's new wealth allowed im to use the best craftsmanship and the finest quality materials. These things survived even after fire burned off the top story of the house a few years after it was built, resulting in the truncated but still impressive house we see today.

Bowman and his wife summered in Omro and wintered in Florida. Later, the house served briefly as a nursing home, but it was converted back into a single family [sic] residence  in 1968 and remains so today.
The C.D. Bowman House and marker are located on southbound Madison Avenue, between East Scott Street (to the south) and East Larrabee Street (to the north), at 629 Madison Avenue, Omro, Wisconsin 54963.
