“The second floor was let out as a separate apartment from the time of construction, and the use of the upstairs space is ingenious. There are three / four bedrooms in this house, two are upstairs along with a kitchenette, sun or dining room, and a small living room.”

“The Marquette Bungalows Historic District holds Madisonís largest concentration of Craftsman style bungalows. Typical characteristics of this style include a prominent roof with exposed rafters, front and/or side dormers, bay windows, and a front porch. This neighborhood of small, primarily one-and-one-half story dwellings displays a cohesiveness of design, although none of the houses are identical. A variety of architectural details adds visual interest and an aesthetically pleasing effect to the neighborhood.” (Submitted on November 2, 2009, by Diane Booth of Madison, Wisconsin.)
