The Niddy Noddy Inn is a beautiful brick guest house with crowns and metal canopies over the front windows and scroll cut decorative barge boards.
Welcoming is the word to describe Betsey Vonderheide's well appointed home. Her brick shotgun, just blocks from Main Street, features a full basement.
John Schuring reconstructed his shotgun from the ground up blending recycled materials with new construction.   
Another brick shotgun just a few doors down from Betsey Vonderheide's home is currently for sale. It features a living room with a fireplace and two bedrooms. 
Jefferson Co. Habitat for Humanityis in the process of rehabilitating this historic shotgun. They are teaming up with local volunteers to rebuild this home for a mother/daughter partner family. Students from Southwestern High School will be working on the house the day of the tour. 
This "Preservation on a Shoestring" program begins at City Hall with a brief introduction about the history and versatility of these iconic homes, followed by a guided trolley tour to view the wide assortment of shotgun styles found in Madison's Historic Landmark District with stops for private tours of 5 homes.
