Elbridge G. Fifield House
Backstory and Context
This Italianate style home was constructed in 1865 for Elbridge Fifield and his family. It shows the main features of the design with the overhanging roofs and pillars in the front. Elbridge Fifield passed away in 1907; however, his family preserved his legacy in Janesville as his sons continued to work in the Fifield Lumber Yard until it was closed in 1961.
