The Brittin Building isn’t British.

Oh those Brittins.

Y’know, I can’t find any information on this building. The Brittins were one of those wealthy and well-known families in Madison, and presumably a Brittin provided most of the funds to build this building on Main Street, but beyond that, I got nothin’.

And here’s what it looked like in the late 1890s. (See below.)

  1. I lived across the street from the Brittin Building from the time I was born in 1928 until adulthood. I am a direct descendant of the William Brittin family. My grandfather was John Henry Brittin who married Henrietta M. Clark. Would like to hear from other direct descendants.
