601 1st Ave SW – Augustus and Elizabeth Bauman House

Share this:

The Bauman House (601 1st Ave. SW)

The house was built circa 1854 for Augustus Bauman on a large piece of land that had been platted by Bauman and his wife Elizabeth as “Bauman’s Addition” to the town of Mount Vernon.

The house is built of locally-manufactured soft mud brick, with locally-quarried limestone for the foundation.

The house has served as a local landmark and still commands attention as a gateway to historic Mount Vernon because of its size, elevated location, architectural style, and its excellent historic integrity.
