1857-58The buff-colored sandstone for this Gothic Revival house was quarried in Westport, barged across Lake Mendota, and cut on the building site. The exterior of the structure is characterized by high peaked gables, decorative barge boards, spiked finials, and a central cupola. William T. Leitch, a New York clothier, commissioned the house before coming to Madison in 1858. He served three terms as mayor beginning in 1862.
