Carl and Nettie Bowman House. 1911; mid-late 1910s; 1980s

611 S Wayne Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

"Two-story Colonial Revival/Classical Revival house of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with an asphalt-shingle hip roof with a north-side hipped dormer and a large rear shed dormer. The two-story single-tier front portico has monumental fluted Ionic columns, dentils and modillions in the cornice (which extend to the main house cornice), and a pediment with a lunette in the brick tympanum. The front entry has sidelights, an elliptical fanlight, and a fluted Doric surround. Other features include an exterior brick chimney, a one-story hipped south wing, 6/6 windows, and three-part front windows with side sash and concrete lintels. There are two modern one-story rear wings, one with a pediment and stuccoed round columns (salvaged from a house that stood across the street), the other with a brick cornice. The front yard is planted with boxwoods, and there is a rockfaced concrete block retaining wall on a poured-concrete foundation across the front of the lot. To the rear is a modern brick wall and parking along the alley. Sanborn maps suggest that the house may have been built as a one-story dwelling and enlarged to two stories in the mid- or late 1910s. Dr. Carl Crawford Bowman was a dentist who was also active in city government. He and his wife Nettie Mosby Bowman designed the house, and M. Ree Ellis built it. The rear additions were made by the present owner, J. B. Yount III (Joseph B. Yount III; Shaw, Ranzini and Wood, ""Waynesboro Tree Streets Historic District"")

Garden structure (stuccoed columns). 1990s."
