Century House, Madison WI

Century House was the name of a sandstone building originally built in 1836 as a tavern. In 1948, the Century House was converted into a pottery studio. From there it expanded to offering handmade pottery as well as Scandinavian gifts, housewares and furniture. The Century House is now in two adjacent buildings, one offering high end modern furniture and the other more of a gifts and housewares shop. Both are equally lovely and so worth a visit.

  1. I LOVE their sign! Thanks for your comment on my blog!

  2. I might be heading over there today, actually!

    I STILL haven't been there, and I've lived here for 5 months now. Before I blamed it on the snow and the terrible pot holes on University Ave, but now I don't have much of an excuse!

  3. i didn't know any other way to let you know, but to comment here...

    i adore your submission to my heart wanders. it evokes hope and heartbreak at the same time and i think it's just swell.


Thanks for visiting Heartland. I love hearing from each and every one of you!
