2010 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

MADISON TOWN PARK COTTAGE
Madison, Morgan County

The History
The 19th-century Madison Town Park Cottage was originally built of soft, hand-formed brick as a small two-room hall and parlor cottage. Through the years, it was used for both residential and commercial purposes.

The Project
After establishing the early 20th-century as its period of significance, the building’s rehabilitation included addressing the sensitive condition of the soft historic brick, the removal of a non-historic post-WWII addition, the reconstruction of lost historical elements, and the construction of a new rear addition to house restroom facilities.

Owner of the building is Madison Downtown Development Authority. Architect of the project was Hall Smith Office-Architecture. Contractor was Watkins Builders.

Current Use
The rehabilitated cottage is open to the public Thursday through Sunday, providing gallery space for the Madison Artists’ Guild, a reading room, and restrooms for visitors to Madison’s downtown.
