The Shrewsbury-Windle House, designed by Indiana’s leading early 19th century architect, Francis Costigan, and completed in 1849 is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior as a masterpiece of Greek Revival architecture. The home was cared for between 1849 and 2009 by the Shrewsbury and Wyatt families, the Walker family and by John and Ann Windle who founded Historic Madison Inc. in the home in 1960. In 2011 the estate of Ann Windle deeded the property to HMI to maintain it as a “historically correct example of architecture for the cultural enrichment of people.”
