Fowle House

412 West Main Street

This house was built by W.H. Willard, a prominent businessman in the mercantile industry. The home was used as a hospital during the War Between the States. The Fowle House was also used as a hotel and boys' school in the 1870s. In 1888, the home was purchased by Lizzie Tayloe Fowle, wife of John Blackwell Fowle. It was at this time that the home was moved back from the street to its present location. The masonry wall at the sidewalk incorporates the original foundation. The left side of the original structure was in the Federal style, with Victorian elements added when the house was moved.
