Built c. 1850, the Kolb Street house sits on 900 acres adjacent to property once owned by the Madison Steam Mill. An example of vernacular Greek Revival, the building boasts a curious combination of Georgian and I-House floor plans on the first and second floors respectively. During 1862 the house was used as a prison camp for Union soldiers who were captured during the battles of Shiloh and Murfreesboro. Following the war the property was used as a farmstead.
