Edward V. Whiton House
Backstory and Context
Not only is this home valuable because of the significance of it`s past owners, but it is also considered one the most prominent examples of Greek Revival architecture in the Janesville area. It is fitting that a successful intellectual involved in politics resided here as the popularity of the Greek Revival style is often associated with the Greek's investment in knowledge. The simple exterior shows the common traits of moldings and pillars often seen in the style of Greek Revival.
