A rare opportunity to own one of Madison's most notable homes! The Curtis Wilcox House, located on the iconic Madison Green, was built circa 1800 by entrepreneur Curtis Wilcox. The garage was originally a barn that was Madison's first post office. Several notable people have lived here, including Reuben Schaller, a prolific inventor of the mid-nineteenth century. In the 1960's the property was purchased by the First Congregational church and served as its Parsonage until 2007.
