1854

"Fighting Bob" La Follette and his wife Belle Case La Follette moved into this dignified old residence in 1881. Both graduated from the UW Law School, Belle being the first woman to do so. Both became preeminent state and national political figures, using their oratorical prowess to campaign against corruption and special privilege, and in favor of the new Progressive party, peace and woman's suffrage. "Fighting Bob" later served as U.S. Congressman, Governor, U.S. Senator and candidate for President.
