Notes
Survey number HABS IN-82
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-27).
Building/structure dates: 1821 initial construction
Significance: The Robinson-Schofield house, built around 1821, is one of the few extant early brick houses in Madison. It is a fine interpretation and distinctive version of the Federal style in the city, and stands opposite two historic Federal style houses of the same period, the Sullivan house (1818), and the Hyatt house (1820). Taken together they form one of Madison's best surviving street intersections expressive of early 19th century domestic life and architecture. A long-standing, however doubtful, tradition states that fourteen Freemasons assembled here on January 12, 1818 and organized the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Indiana.
