Preservation Personals: Reconstruction Era House Seeking Revival
Theodore Yates House -- Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I am grateful for Colonel Theodore Yates, not just for his service at Vicksburg during the Civil War, but also for building me in 1868. My neighbors include several other historic homes here in the Concordia Historic District in Milwaukee. I have retained most of my original woodwork and fixtures.
Sure, I’m old and need some work done, but I am proud to be registered in the National Register of Historic Places. My large attic holds a lot of potential for bedroom or office space, and my Gothic Revival exterior is a palateable Milwaukee cream color, topped with a steeply pitched, multi-gabled roof.
My best attribute, though? You can use historic tax credits to fund my restoration!
