East End Historic District
Middleton, Dane County
Period of Significance: 1890-1954

Burgeoning auto ownership transformed Middleton in the mid-twentieth century, as it became a commuter suburb of nearby Madison. This residential building boom is reflected in the East End Historic District, a collection of forty-three predominately Period Revival style single-family residences.

Builders constructed the earliest buildings in the district (save two) between 1925 and 1933. Three of those were Bungalows, the first national building type. The majority of the district, built between 1935 and the 1940s, contains examples of other nationally popular residential styles, including the Colonial Revival, Dutch Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival styles. These homes illustrate how domestic publications such as catalogs, plan books, and architecture and shelter magazines influenced domestic tastes. While individually modest, collectively they illustrate the most popular house types of the mid-twentieth century.

The East End Historic District provides an important stylistic bridge between Middleton's small town, pre-World War I community and its expansive post-World War II suburban neighborhoods.

The homes in this district are privately owned, please respect the privacy of their owners.
