1903; Addition 1911

This building is significant for its association with Madison's cultural history, particularly transportation manufacturing, and as an excellent example of a textile mill industrial loft type building. This type of building was long and narrow with multiple floors and abundant windows providing natural lighting and ventilation. The open interior plan provided ample space, easily adaptable for manufacturing equipment. Constructed for the manufacture of horse-drawn buggies, production was converted in 1917 to auto bodies and tops as automobiles became more predominant.
