Fowler House
111 Elizabeth Avenue E.,

Fowler House

Designation Date: November 14, 2000
Designation Authority: R.M. of Argyle
Present Owner: privately owned

The solid brick house on Baldur's main thoroughfare is an interesting amalgam of architectural styles popular in the late 1800s. The no-nonsense four-square massing of the whole is enlivened with an Italianate-style roof and brackets and by a highly decorated Gothic Revival-style central gable at the building's front. The house was constructed in 1897 for one of Baldur's leading citizens, William Oliver Fowler, who owned the local elevator and served as the community's postmaster. Fowler's descendents have lived in the house ever since, with the most recent occupant converting it to serve as a bed and breakfast facility.
