The Ferdinand Ewert Building was an historic row house located in the West End of Davenport, Iowa, United States. It was a Vernacular style building that featured elements of both the Federal and Greek Revival styles that was one of the trends toward the end of Davenport's settlement period. It followed a simple form with frontal symmetry and parapet gable ends. This house was probably built by Gottlieb Wedige right after this section of the city was platted in 1852. Ferdinand Ewert, a teamster who lived across the street, bought it in 1871. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, and has subsequently been torn down.
