Town of Medary, WI. – The Wisconsin Historical Society announces the listing of the Razy and John Wright House in the Town of Medary, La Crosse County, on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Wright House represents the original work of a highly skilled designer, who has not been conclusively identified. The house, which does not fit neatly into any single stylistic category, shows influences of different architectural styles that create an original design that stands apart as one of the most unique in the community. It has had very few alterations since it was completed in 1930. With its picturesque silhouette, locally-quarried stone masonry, leaded glass windows, and fine craftsmanship, the Wright House is an outstanding local example of an eclectic Period Revival house that incorporates elements of the Arts and Crafts movement and the Rustic, Tudor, and Storybook styles.
The National Register is the official list of historic properties in America deemed worthy of preservation and is maintained by the National Park Service in the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Wisconsin Historical Society administers the program within Wisconsin. It includes sites, buildings, structures, objects and districts that are significant in national, state or local history, architecture, archaeology, engineering or culture.
