Regarding Nichols Station. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "Nichols Station [is] also known as the Madison Water Works... Engineers for the construction of the station faced the challenge of constructing the building around and eventually enclosing the still-operating old pumping station. The station continued operation until 1976. The design of the pumping station reflects the influence of the Prairie School of architecture, uncommon in utilitarian structures. Design details of this main station were used in most of the smaller stations that sprung up around the city as Madison grew."
