    11 www.janesvillecvb.com

    Were more fun than a history book, but just as valuable if history is your passion. Proud of their heritage, our residents have shown great dedication in restoration of the Janesville communitys early buildings and homes. Spend an afternoon downtown visiting antique shops and viewing Janesvilles historic districts!

    Janesville was named in 1836 after early settler Henry Janes who traveled to the area, following the Black Hawk War of 1832. Twenty percent of Wisconsins buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places can be found in Janesville. One highlight is the Tallman House, significant as Wisconsins only private residence where Abraham lincoln slept. The Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center features traveling exhibits, permanent exhibits and special events. For a lesson in history and architecture, walk down our city streets. Janesville features seven historic districts that make perfect walking tours.

  • The twin towers of St. Marys Catholic Church mark the location of the Prospect Hill Historic District. In the first decades of the citys growth, the steep hills on the east side of the Rock River restricted road building and house construction. Consequently, like Courthouse Hill to the south, this area enjoyed its greatest period of development at the turn of the century as the streets of central Janesville neared completion.

    For 86 years, the centerpiece of Courthouse Hill was the French Second Empire Style Rock County Courthouse. The tall mansard roof of the impressive brick and stone building was a prominent element on the Janesville skyline. It was razed for construction of the current courthouse in 1957.

    Extending along the east bank of the Rock River, the South Main Street Historic District retains much of its mid-to-late-nineteenth-century character. locally quarried or manufactured building materials are evident in the brick, cast iron, and stone trim of many early storefronts, particularly at the upper stories.

    The look West Historic District is part of Janesvilles old First Ward, an early neighborhood with connections to the

    citys rail and manufacturing interests. The great variety of architecture attests to the diversity of its nineteenth-century population.

    A rich display of the ideas of late nineteenth century masons and carpenters is found in the West Milwaukee Street District. Cream-colored brick and stone-trimmed windows and parapets are distinctive features of many commercial buildings along this street.

    One of the oldest residential areas, the old Fourth Ward Historic District, includes the early settlements of Rockport and Monterey near the lower dam, as well as an area of high styled houses and churches downtown.

    The Columbus Circle Historic District is a residential enclave arranged around the oval of Columbus Circle and three small park triangles. Developed in 1916 by the Parker Pen Company of Janesville as the Parkwood Addition, it is one of the citys distinctive exceptions to the grid plan street layouts.

    The small parks are neighborhood centerpieces, and houses include a variety of architectural styles popular in Janesville in the early 20th century.
