— Conover & Porter —

Designed for Madison attorney Charles Buell in the Shingle style with Queen Anne proportions and ornament, this house was the first built in University Heights. Called "Buell's Folly," it was the work of Madison architects Allen D. Conover and Lew F. Porter. The house is one of the few remaining Madison Shingle structures built in a style significant to the rise of American architecture in the Midwest.
