Brookfield, WI. – The Wisconsin Historical Society announces the listing of the George H. and Frances Daubner House in Brookfield, Waukesha County, on the State Register of Historic Places.


Built between 1866 and 1870, the George H. and Frances Daubner farmhouse is a largely intact rural example of the Italianate style of architecture executed in brick making the home unique among historic properties in Brookfield. Daubner House has wide overhanging eaves and first-floor bays that project from the main body of the house. Detailing not seen on any other homes in the City of Brookfield include raised brick window surrounds and arched windows.


An artist’s 1878 interpretation of the home is clearly recognizable as the house that stands today.


The State Register is Wisconsin’s official list of state properties determined to be significant to Wisconsin’s heritage. The State Historic Preservation Office at the Wisconsin Historical Society administers both the State Register and National Register in Wisconsin.
