William H. and Dora Collins House
704 East Gorham Street
Madison, Wisconsin 53703-1522

Claude & Starck, 1910

A substantial brick residence with eclectic details, including Craftsman, Tudor and Prairie. It has a beautiful view of Lake Mendota to the rear.

William was involved in the lumber business.His brother Cornelius also commissioned an earlier (1908) residence from Claude & Starck next door at 646 East Gorham Street, which has fewer Prairie features.

This house was for a number of years a bed & breakfast called “The Collins House”. This ceased operations in 2006, and the building now appears to be empty.
