Ferdinand Kronenberg, Architect

— 1910 —

Albert and Henry Atkins founded the Badger State Shoe Factory in Milwaukee in 1893. They expanded production to Madison in 1900 and in 1910 constructed this building to consolidate manufacturing operations. Significant for its association with turn of the century industrial expansion in Madison, this was the only large shoe factory in the city. The work of Madison architect Ferdinand Kronenberg, its progessive design included an exterior with understated classical elements and a modern interior having an open plan, which was ventilated and lit by 225 double hung windows.
