1899 / 1906

This block is comprised of two buildings constructed seven years apart. Although altered, this block is significant as a representative example of the commercial building type and the early history of local commercial architecture. This building type was common at the turn of the 20th century, but now few groupings of late 19th and early 20th century commercial buildings remain in Madison. Of note are the Mediterranean Revival style elements visible at the second story which includes arcaded windows and exuberant stylized foliate motifs executed in glazed terra cotta.
