The Doctor Bowers House - Elizabethton, TN

The Doctor Bowers House - Elizabethton, TN

From the brochure entitled the Elizabethton Walking Tour, this home is listed as stop #4:
The house known as the Doctor Bowers House was built around 1906 by Dr. E.E. Hunter and his wife, Mollie Jobe Hunter, daughter of Dr. Abraham Jobe, after a fire destroyed their previous home. One of Elizabethton's most beloved physicians, Dr. Hunter, also operated a drug store in the city, served for a short time as Postmaster, and oversaw the construction of the Covered Bridge. The house is primarily Greek Revival Style with various other architectural style influences, particularly Classical Revival. The north bay of the interior stair landing features beautiful stained glass windows.
