UW-Madison’s Agriculture Campus Is Focus of MadisonTrust for Historic Preservation’s Saturday, Oct. 1, Walking Tour
MADISON, Wis.—On Saturday, Oct. 1, the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation will offer a docent-led historic architecture walking tour of the University of Wisconsin-Madison agriculture campus. Tour participants will view architectural gems, including the National Historic Landmark Dairy Barn, the Queen Anne-style Dean’s House and the “Cowlesium,” and learn about trailblazing scientific discoveries made on the campus that have benefited people around the world.
The 90-minute tours will depart every half hour beginning at 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. from the entrance to Allen Centennial Garden, 620 Babcock Dr. Tickets will be available starting Aug. 1. To insure a place on the tour, order advance timed tickets at www.madisonpreservation.org or call 608-441-8864. The cost is $30, $20 for students with an ID, and $25 for Madison Trust members. A limited number of tickets may be available on site on the day of the event. Free parking will be available at the Steenbock Ramp, 1645 Observatory Dr., and Tripp Hall, 1480 Tripp Circle.
"As tour-goers walk along the streets and pathways of UW-Madison's ag campus, they’ll not only discover some hidden architectural treasures, but they’ll also trace the footsteps of the pioneering 19th- and 20th-century scientists who helped make UW's international reputation,” explained Peter Gottlieb, who developed the special fundraising tour for the Madison Trust.
Most of the buildings included on the tour were built between 1890 and 1917. The work done in these buildings includes many of the first manifestations of the Wisconsin Idea, the belief that the benefits of university research and teaching should extend throughout the state and improve the lives of all Wisconsin residents. Research by scientists including Stephen Babcock, Harry Steenbock, Karl Paul Link and, more recently, Hector De Luca, has resulted in improved animal and human nutrition, advances in plant genetics and life-saving drugs. .
The Madison Trust for Historic Preservation is dedicated to the conservation of Madison’s historic places through advocacy and education. A volunteer board of trustees guides the independent, nonprofit, community-supported organization. Madison Trust works with the Madison Landmarks Commission and other municipal agencies as well as Historic Madison Inc., the Wisconsin Historical Society, and the Wisconsin Trust for Historic Preservation. Madison Trust is a Local Partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Madison Water Utility Building
119 E. Olin Avenue, Room A-B
This summer, Madison Water Utility is reaching out to people across the city in an effort to gauge public awareness and attitudes about tap water. The “Know Your H2O” survey campaign was launched to measure what Madisonians think about everything from conservation to aging infrastructure to water quality and safety. Unlike past surveys sent largely to the utility’s 68,000 bill-paying customers, the “Know Your H2O” survey is intended for anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Madison and uses its water.
Madison Water Utility’s role is to provide a public service, and we believe all members of the public should have a voice when it comes to their water. The online survey takes around 5 minutes to complete and is available in English and Spanish.
