1 Sitting in this soft mulch bed, I like to look at this striking sculpture and recall the downtown renovation and the sounds of construction. 2 This little downtown alley way is now a pedestrian walkway. I sit at the base of a structure that shines light for the photographers and their subjects. 3 Back in the day, the community could set their watches by the sounds of the arriving and departing trains. I sit here and think of this new timepiece, made to look old, that now serves the downtown area shop owners and patrons. 4 Although now a very yummy establishment, this location once served as a temporary home for those who would enjoy "saw" or "file" pie. I will rest on this perch and hope that I am soon found. 5 I am fascinated by this historical relic on Front Street, because this small chamber on a two-wheeled frame is louder than a passing train. 6 Once a home, then a museum, it is now a storefront to many businesses. I enjoy the view from the front porch of this old home. The Clays would be happy that their 1858 home continues to serve the community. 7 Students entered this building in first grade and graduated twelve years later. The city's only historic school received this memorial site marker from the High School Class of 1941. 8 This replica building on the village green serves as a shady place to pass the time. Once the first town hall, it is now an iconic image for Madison's downtown. While sitting under this building, I like looking up at its irregular shape.
