Frank Riley, Architect
— 1916-1918 —The Madison Club, Madison's premiere social club, was designed in the Georgian Revival style by master Madison architect Frank Riley. Artfully executed in red brick with concrete classical ornament including columns, friezes, portico and urns, the building is among Riley's finest non-residential designs. Teddy Roosevelt, who stayed at the Madison Club on May 28, 1918, informally dedicated the building by raising the Club's flag. Also significant for its association with prominent Madison businessmen and leaders. The Club is the city's oldest, continuously operating social club.
