J. W. Bowman House. Ca. 1918

704 Pine Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story Victorian house of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with a metal-sheathed hip roof with decorative gables. The one-story wraparound porch has Doric columns. Other features include two interior brick chimneys, windows and louvered rectangular vents in the gables, transoms over the front and side entries, a two-tier side porch with wood posts and square-section balusters, and 1/1 windows. There is a spring on the lot and a block of concrete in the yard is thought to have been associated with the chimney of an earlier house. A date that appears to be 1910 is in the concrete of the front walk, although historian Curtis Bowman, the son of one-time house owner J. W. Bowman, implies that his father had the house built in or about 1918. (J. Sidney Langrall; Bowman, Waynesboro Days of Yore, vol. 2 p. 116)
