Wisconsin's Own: 20 Remarkable Homes

M. Caren Connolly & Louis Wasserman

Wisconsin Historical Society Press


"In a very real sense, history is just
stories about people. This marvelous
book uses stories about people-where
they came from, what they believed in,
what they dreamed of, and especially
what kind of homes they built-to present
a compelling history of a special part
of America. From a quirky octagon of the
1850's to an Art Moderne marvel of the
1930's, the houses on these pages remind
us of the richness of Wisconsin's
heritage-and the importance of keeping
it intact and alive." Richard Moe,
President, National Trust for Historic

Richly illustrated with drawings and
watercolors by the authors and
complimented by stunning photos by Zane
