About the Madison Saddlery Company building: This Neoclassical Revival/Craftsman building was designed by Madison architect Alvan Small, and built in 1907. This is the only building in Madison that was constructed for a leather-goods business. It was built for Charles Hoebel, who was president of the Madison Saddlery Company, manufacturers of all types of harnesses and wholesale dealers in saddlery hardware, blankets, fur goods, saddles, whips, etc. The company closed in 1930, a casualty of the rise of the automobile and the tractor. This building is remarkably intact on both the exterior and interior.
