I have been doing a little digging to see if there is any interesting history tied to this house. Here is what I have found so far.
The house is registered with the Wisconsin Historical Society as The W.A.P. Morris House.
W.A.P. Morris was a lawyer who moved to Madison in 1854. He was known to be the last surviving son of any Revolutionary War veteran. Additionally, I discovered he hung out at a Frank Lloyd Wright designed cottage called “Rocky Roost” that used to stand on an smaller island near Governor’s Island.
