Built in 1854, The Livingston Inn is an important landmark in the history of Madison. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the William T. Leitch House, the home is constructed of local buff-colored sandstone which was quarried in nearby Westport, barged across Lake Mendota, and cut on the building site. In addition to being a prominent landmark in the City of Madison, The Livingston Inn is an important piece of local history. Two of Madison’s first mayors (William T. Leitch, 1862-65 and Moses R. Doyon, 1888-90) lived in the house between the years 1857-1881 and 1881-1902, respectively. In addition, a prominent member of the Progressive movement and a close friend of “Fighting Bob” LaFollette lived in the home in the early 20th Century.
