The house stands at #1 Bowne Street at 37th Avenue in Flushing, New York. The home is a wood-frame English Colonial saltbox, notable for its steeply pitched roof with three dormers. The house was altered several times over the centuries, and several generations of the Bowne family lived in the house until 1945, when the family deeded the property to the Bowne Historical Society. Bowne House reportedly served as a stop on the Underground Railroad prior to the American Civil War.
