1903; 1916-1918The Steinle Turret Machine Co. building represents Madison's early industrial heritage. This building is significant as a manufacturing type known as a production shed. It is characterized by its one-story brick construction of considerable length, having a 3-bay form with a tall, central crane bay for a traveling production crane, an open floor plan, monitor roof, and steel-framed, wire-glass windows. The exterior design, termed Astylistic Utilitarian, reflected an engineer's concept of beauty based on function and utility, detailed to imply strength and efficient organization.
