Inscription.  
John P. Bowman, a well-known businessman from Cuttingsville, Vermont, moved to Stony Creek in 1852. He purchased an incomplete tannery, which, with a sawmill and three houses, were the only structures in the village of Creek Center. He completed the tannery and added sheds, shops and storage buildings. He also built a boarding house for 25 men and 16 houses for tannery workers and their families. At the intersection of the roads from Hadley and Warrensburg, he built an elegant home for his family.
