BREESE J. STEVENS HOUSE
1863-1864
This multi-faceted brick Italianate house was built for Madison lawyer, Daniel K. Tenney. In 1871, Tenney sold it to Breese J. Stevens who probably altered the house significantly during his ownership. Stevens was elected mayor of Madison in 1884 and was also a curator of the State Historical Society and a regent of the University of Wisconsin from 1891 to 1904. An early carriage house and latticed well cover may be found near the rear of the house.
