Regarding Timothy and Katherine McCarthy House. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "American versions like this one often include Colonial ornamentation like capped windows and broken pediments. It is an excellent residential example of the teamwork of master builder Timothy McCarthy and master architects Conover and Porter during the height of their careers and the height of the popularity of the Queen Anne style."
