Regarding Irene and Robert Connor Residence. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "This Colonial Revival house features an interesting floor plan: the stairs to the second floor are immediately in front of the main entrance, similar to many of the old Colonial houses on Cape Cod. The house was built for Irene Connor, daughter of Anna and Cornelius Collins who lived next door at 646 E. Gorham, and her husband Robert Connor. When Anna Collins died, her daughter Irene took over the vice-presidency of the family's lumber concern."
