1. Hirsig House Marker
Inscription. Commissioned to Madison architect Alvan E. Small by retail store owner Louis Hirsig, this stucco and brick house exemplifies the simplicity of the Prairie style. The horizontal lines of the windows along with the distinctive red tile roof and wide overhangs provide a well-balanced composition. Small, who was trained by Allen Conover and Louis Sullivan, chose earthen-colored materials as a part of the total design.
