T.R. Bowen Building

Historic Sites, Monuments, Landmarks, and Public Art ()


The “Bowen Block”, built in 1894, is one of the few buildings that survived the 1924 tornado unscathed. The building reveals a split rock façade and contributed to Lorain’s economic power by hosting businesses such as Sylvester Drug Store, Koury Michael F. Realtor, Miller Chuck Insurance Agency, Mrs. Ella McKee Shoes, Peoples Service Drug Store, and Libra Leatherwork throughout its life time. The building now serves as a private residence.
