Regarding Shrewsbury-Windle House. Excerpt from the National Historical Landmark nomination:
The Shrewsbury House was designed and built by the young architect, Francis Costigan, who had come from Baltimore to Madison because of the vast opportunities in this booming river town along the Ohio River. Construction started in 1846 and was completed three years later, just in time for a rather spectacular housewarming party on April 1, 1849. During the three years, nearly one hundred men were kept busy on the house with Costigan laying out the work each day for the supervisors. For his double task of designing and supervising, Costigan received $1.25 per day, the highest price on the job.
