351 Old Fort Road, LaPointe, Wisconsin 54850 - History From the Ashland News April 30, 1913
Our most recent Madeline Island listing (351 Old Fort Road, La Pointe, Wisconsin) has a fascinating history! Below is a photocopy of a newspaper clipping from the "Ashland News" (in Ashland, Wisconsin), dated Wednesday April 30, 1913.
The article bears the headline "New $15,000 Bungalow" and just below the headline, it continues, "Work Begins on an Expensive Bungalow on Madeline Island for a Kansas City Physician".
The Hull home on Mission Hill was considered by many to be the largest and most modern of its kind on Madeline Island at the time of construction, described as "the most elaborate and the finest building on Madeline Island". The construction quality is evident today, as the structure is in superb condition and has been painstakingly maintained.
Prices have certainly gone up with inflation since 1913, but you can own this remarkable historic home in its elegantly preserved state. Call Madeline Island Realty for details, at 715.747.6500 or email MadelineIsland@Gmail.com.
