Cottage at 1010!
This is what we know of the story for 1010 West Main Street in beautiful downtown Madison, Indiana. This fun little project was purchased in April 2021 by Rick and Cathy Taylor. The Taylor’s had relocated from central Indiana and made Madison their home in the fall of 2019. They loved Madison so much and wanted to share it with as many family and friends as they could, so they purchased the home to accommodate the frequent guests. The Taylor’s often refer to the home as their ‘Peacock Palace’ away from home (two doors down).
The home was nearly bare bones at the time of purchase and took almost a year to complete. Many historic originals remain in the home. Halfway through the project, the Taylor’s were approached by a member of the family that had once called 1010 home. Wanda quickly became an asset to the project and beloved friend to the Taylor’s. She has shared stories, pictures, and information she knew of the home. The Taylor’s had reached out many resources in the community for an old photograph, to be able to restore as much as possible. Wanda was the honorary first overnight guest on Easter weekend of 2022. If you’re lucky during your visit, you’ll get to meet her.
