Regarding Mattermore - Malaney House. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "This is a good example of a nineteenth-century front gable house, a simple vernacular form built with its gable end facing the street. Houses of this type were built in Wisconsin from the 1840s to the 1920s. This house is built on a wood frame, and features an off-center entrance, double-hung windows, and simple classical lines. Small frame residences like this are not typically as intact as this house, because they were fairly easy to alter and add onto over the years. James Malaney, a gas fitter with the Madison Gas Light and Coke Company, and his wife Theresa purchased the property
