Dovecote House, Circa 1830, Madison

This home was built in the transitional Federal style by Isaac Walker for his daughter Cornelia and her husband Thomas Jefferson Burney circa 1830 and remodeled to its present Victorian appearance by Martin Richter circa 1895. The house supposedly survived a devastating fire in Madison in 1869 by being covered with wet blankets. It derives its name from a dovecote in the yard.
