Notes
Survey number HABS IN-91
Building/structure dates: 1849 initial construction
Significance: The Frevart-Schnaitter House was built 1849 and is a fine example of one of Madison's stately mid-century residences. Its generous proportions and spaciousness are characteristic of the town's two-story houses. The typical Madison floor plan, however, was asymmetrical with an off-center through hall rather than a symmetrical plan with a central hall, as found here. The classical entrance portico is the structure's outstanding feature. The octagonal wooden columns supporting a plain denticulated cornice is unique to Madison architecture.
