City of Madison

Designed to preserve part of the original gracious character of the Mansion Hill area, the Period Garden Park incorporated historical elements that complement its two landmark neighbors, the Elisha Keyes House and the Timothy Brown House. The combination of grassy areas and large planted beds occurred frequently in early Madison domestic gardens. Curvilinear forms, brick walkways, carved sandstone step decorations and iron fencing were also familiar elements. When a thirty-unit apartment building was planned for this site, the former lawn of the Elisha Keyes House, neighborhood residents, downtown businesses and interested citizens from around the city worked and contributed to the historic park fund to create this garden. City and state officials cooperated to secure state and federal funds for part of the purchase price. The park was developed and is maintained by the City Parks Division. It was dedicated on May 8, 1977 by the Board of the Park Commissioners and the Madison Landmarks Commission.
