The Draper Brothers block is significant as one of the few remaining buildings of native sandstone from Madison's earliest era of commercial development and for being associated with Madison's commercial history, having housed a meat market on the ground floor for seventy four years. The location across from the state capitol was used to full advantage; the asymmetrical footprint allowed for a prominent entrance directly on the corner and facing the capitol building, the large arched openings for the entrance and display windows impart a dramatic scale to an otherwise small building.
