Plough Inn in Madison
Plough Inn is a significant remnant of Madison's early development. It served pioneer farmers, business travelers, legislators, civil war soldiers, and city visitors. Frederick Paunack was a stonecutter and prominent stone businessman in Madison. He and his wife Amelia constructed the building from local sandstone as a residence. Paunack quickly converted it to an inn as the number of travelers increased on the newly improved Madison-Wiota Road.
