Regarding Bashford House. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "From 1865 to 1915 the house was owned by Morris and Anna Fuller. Morris Fuller was a distributor of agricultural implements, a business that was to become one of the mainstays of the Madison economy. The Fullers' daughter, Sarah, married lawyer and politician Robert Bashford and they lived in the house together from 1889 until 1911. August Kutzbock is known to have done some of the drawings for finishing the house, and it is probable that he also drew the original design."
