Designed by Madison architect Frank Riley for a prominent undertaker, this Tudor-style house was built on an old cobblestone foundation. Painter Aaron Bohrod purchased it in 1959 and added a studio designed by Herb Fritz. Bohrod, artist in residence at the University of Wisconsin from 1948 to 1973, is noted for his 'trompe l'oeil' style of painting.
The property is located on westbound Tonyawatha Trail, west of its intersection with Winnequah Road, at 4811 Tonyawatha Trail, Monona, Wisconsin 53716.

The marker is on the boulder to the right of the driveway.
