50 Madison Street
This late nineteenth century home is a typical example of a vernacular architecture. Vernacular architecture has a broad range, which focuses on and utilizes the local materials and supplies available. Because of this, it tends to greatly reflect the time period, location, and technology available where and when it was built.
This is a frame house with clapboard siding, and a front porch that is a modest version of Italianate architecture. The 2 ½ story building fits its lot with telescoping sections that narrow at the back of the structure. This narrowing effect allows for a lovely and spacious side yard, and a backyard.
