Notes
Survey number HABS IN-124
Significance: The Colby-Jeffery House, constructed in 1838-39 for Daniel Colby, is an interesting example of the Greek Revival style in Indiana. The slender Doric columns and simple pediment mark Madison's earliest Greek Revival house, rivaled later only by the elegant J.F.D. Lanier House (HABS No. IN-23) and the Shrewsbury House (HABS No. IN-8). J.F.D. Lanier, one of Madison's most influential citizens, lived in the Colby-Jeffery House while his own was under construction.
