Significance: The Mulberry Street Block is the best surviving example of Madison's waterfront area of a nineteenth century business district. These eight brick row buildings were erected intermittently between the late 1820s and early 1840s. On the street level, they housed clothing and drygoods shops and drug and liquor stores, and private residences on the second and third floors. The cast-iron and sheet-metal fronts on some facades date from remodeling completed during the 1870s. During the 1850s and 60s, Mulberry Street was a prospering commercial thoroughfare which connected the Ohio River waterfront district with the city's center. This half block is a valuable statement of Madison's early commercial prosperity and architecture.
