2013 PRESERVATION AWARDS: STEWARDSHIP

Atkinson Family Descendants
Madison, Morgan County

The Atkinson family home was originally a single story cottage built in 1893 for Millard Fillmore and Junie Atkinson. In 1900 the Atkinsons turned their home into the two-story Queen Anne it is today, complete with Victorian ornamentation from Mr. Atkinson's milling business, the Madison Variety Works. Generations of Atkinson family descendants have lived continuously in the house over the years. Although relatively few modifications and upgrades have been made over the last century, a recent rehabilitation project addressed incompatible additions and materials in an effort to restore the integrity of the house's early design. Thanks to generations of family stewardship, the Atkinson family home has remained a vital and contributing part of Madison's historic fabric.
