The Bowman House is a historic log house located at 323 North Main Street in Boonsboro, Maryland, United States, typical example of those built in the area in the early 19th century.

Description and history[edit]

The house and its immediate grounds housed the "Boonsboro Pottery" from 1868, owned by John E. Bowman. The pottery closed by 1908, succumbing to mass-produced materials. The building is now the headquarters of the Boonsboro Historical Society.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 29, 1977.[1]
