I’ve seen numerous dates for this house, so I can’t confirm 1839.

Like many gable-ell houses (or front-gable side-wing), this one incorporates several style elements. Gabled-ell is a generic term for houses that have a protruding room topped by a gable conjoined to a rectangular wing.

Boxwood, Circa 1850, Madison

Also known as the Kolb-Pou-Newton House, Boxwood was Madison’s first major Italianate home, even though its other “facade” is Greek Revival in style. As grand as this house is, it’s equally well-known for its formal garden. The Madison Historic Marker outside notes: Boxwood gardens were an antebellum landscape feature gracing many Madison homes. Parterres were a garden form developed in Renaissance France inspired by lace brocade patterns…and Madison gardens found form in plantings of English boxwood.

This was built in the Queen Anne style after the Civil War and following a complete renovation in 1967, it became the Parish House for the Episcopal Church of the Advent, located next door.

This chapel was built by the Methodists in 1844 and was acquired by the Episcopal diocese in 1961.

In 1846, the first Episcopal congregation was established in Madison. During the 1850s, they built a Greek Revival chapel which served them for over 80 years. The hardships of the Great Depression caused a significant loss in membership and the church was deconsecrated in 1937 and razed soon thereafter. The church was re-established in 1953.
