Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin
1885; ADDITIONS C. 1892 AND 1909
This building is significant for its association with Madison's industrial history. It is all that remains of the once expansive Fuller & Johnson Manufacturing Co., a producer of farm implements and the first major industry in Madison. The building is also significant for its association with John A. Johnson, the firm's president. Johnson, a former state senator, was a leading industrialist credited with establishing Madison as a manufacturing center, and who organized Madison's two largest turn of the century manufacturing firms (Fuller & Johnson and Gisholt Manufacturing Co).
