1901William D. Curtis commissioned the architectural firm of J. O. Gordon and F. W. Paunack to design this imposing brick house with Queen Anne style. Hallmarks of the style include the complex shape, wide veranda and corner tower, highlighted by eclectic and finely-crafted details. Curtis was the manager of the local horse collar pad factory founded by his father, Dexter Curtis. He also served one term as the mayor (1904-1906). I. M. Kittleson, who served three terms as Madison's mayor from 1920 to 1925, bought the house in 1949.
