1853-54This rambling brick Italianate and Eclectic style house probably was originally built for Lansing W. Hoyt, a local speculator. It was later occupied and altered by Elisha W. Keyes, a powerful local political "boss" who was appointed postmaster by Abraham Lincoln in 1861, and elected mayor of Madison in 1865, 1866, and again in 1886. The house was the site of many political conferences and social events.
