This typical Wisconsin farmhouse became the retirement home in 1880 of early civic leader George Nichols. Five unusual round windows upstairs and a hilltop location provided a grand view of the area. Nichols School and Road, built on parcels of his original farm, are named in George Nichols' honor.
The property is located on northbound Ridgewood Avenue, just south of its intersection with Graham Drive, at 6204 Ridgewood Avenue, Monona, Wisconsin 53716.
