1. James and Bridget Casserly House Marker
Inscription. The Casserly house is a classic example of a Queen Anne style house built for a middle-class family. James Casserly was a foreman and later superintendent of the Madison Democrat, one of Madison's two major newspapers at the turn-of-the-century. The Casserlys were one of many families of Irish descent who lived in this neighborhood. In the 1960's, the house became a rooming house and its condition deteriorated. In 1980, it was carefully restored as offices and an apartment.
