Notes
Survey number HABS IN-92
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-36).
Significance: The Jacob Shuh house is a notable example of Madison's earliest Greek Revival homes. Built 1837-38 for the nineteenth-century industrialist Jacob Shuh, the conservative yet impressive design of the brick residence served to express Shuh's newly acquired status within the early Madison community. Several prominent families have been connected with the home, including drygoods merchant C.L. Holstein, and doctors R.W. Cochran and S.A. Whitsitt.
