Claude and Starck, Architects
— 1925; 1934 —Breese Stevens Field, named for the former Madison mayor whose family donated the land, is significant as the city's premier athletic facility from 1926 through the 1960s. The grandstand, designed by prominent Madison architects Claude and Starck in the Mediterranean Revival style, was constructed of brick, terra cotta and clay tile with bleacher seating of reinforced concrete. The stands accommodated close to 4,000 baseball fans on opening day. The sandstone wall surrounding the field, built in 1934, is significant as a Great Depression era Civil Works Administration project.
