Francis Costigan completed this masterpiece of design on a small lot in 1851.  He incorporated space-saving features such as a sliding pocket front door, a postage-stamp-sized entry, and a unique step-ladder staircase to create a 32’ x 16’ parlor.  Costigan, who designed the Lanier Mansion and the Shrewsbury House, is considered Indiana’s leading pre-Civil War architect and master builder.  The property is owned and operated by Historic Madison, Inc.
