Madison: A Model City

This Web site offers a primary source document about Madison's history. John Nolen's 1911 report to the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association is a preeminent example of the urban landscape movement at the turn of the century. Nolen's plan for the City of Madison is hard to find in the original, as most of the few library copies have been stolen or mutilated. These digital encodings were taken from an intact copy of the original book and are made available by the UW-Madison Digital Collections Center.
