BOWMAN HOUSE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of Bowman House.

Tanning Magnate John P. Bowman built the Bowman House in Cuttingsville, Vermont in 1800’s. Across from the house in 1880, he built the Laurel Glen Mausoleum to hold the remains of this beloved wife and children. Here you will also see a life size statue of John Bowman walking up the steps in mourning carrying with him a bouquet of flowers. Another statue of him is kneeling just outside the door with a wreath and key in hand. The entire granite and marble mausoleum took 125 sculptors and stonecutters a full year to build.

No one knows exactly what occurred in 1880, except the fact that John Bowman lost his entire family, wife, and children on the same day. Some speculate it was an outbreak of typhoid, an accident such as a horse buggy or an attack of some kind as there is a dark spot found at the top of the stairs, which could be the remains of blood that has stained the floor.

The ghost that many have seen is one of an unknown woman walking around the estate as she passes by the windows. Many believe the apparition is that of Mrs. Bowman. Others have stated that while standing on the dark stain at the top of the stairs they have an uneasy feeling one of dread.

Along with the woman, other strange occurrences seem to happen. One such event is that of a young child during a tour. She stuck her tongue out at a picture hanging on the wall, the picture fell from the wall and hit her. Everyone in the tour saw this happen. It seems whatever ghost is left behind expects children to mind their manners.
