    Lincoln-Tallman 2

Built between 1855 and 1857, the Lincoln-Tallman House is a fine example of Italian Villa style architecture. Operated by the Rock County Historical Society, the house contains over 75% original furnishings and depicts upper class life during the mid to late 1800's. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in each of the 26 rooms on five levels from the basement to the cupola.
