Title: Doty House
Description: The Doty House on Doty Street (formerly Clymer Street), the first "Executive Mansion" in Madison, occupied in 1841-1844 by Territorial Governor James Duane Doty. When new, it was considered one of the choicest small houses in Madison. It was built by Simon Mills, who sold it to Doty; it was subsequently occupied by Governor Tallmadge (who succeeded Doty), Barlow Shackelold (Doty's brother-in-law), and was later owned by George Burrows, who owned the Opera House next door, and the Williams family. Burrows had the building demolished.
