OHD Notes
From the National Register: "Karl Doege House/Masonic Temple 311 West Park Street, 1905 - 1908This house is an example of the early and vernacular Tudor Revivals that were being built at the turn of the century.. The two and one- half story red brick, side-gabled house is rectangular in shape and has a brick foundation. The asphalt shingles are diamond shaped. The front facade has flat-roofed square entrance with brick piers. Overhead the flat roof becomes a balcony that has an iron railing.

The house has undergone a major modification in the removal of its former facade-length front porch. NFS Form 10-900-a(Rev. 8-86)Wisconsin Word Processing Format(Approved 1/92)United States Department of the Interior National Park ServiceNational Register of Historic PlacesContinuation SheetWest Park Street Historic District Marshfield, Wood County, WisconsinSection: 7 Page: 10The house has undergone a major modification in the removal of its former facade-length front porch.A slightly projecting bay, finished in wood and painted white, has a set of French doors in the center, which open to the balcony. The brick piers which begin on the porch continue up to the balcony and serve as corner posts. A centered front gable, which is over the entrance porch, has a gabled dormer on either side. The dormers are covered in wooden shingles and the windows are boarded over. The single window in the gable is also boarded over. The fenestration on the front elevation is symmetrical. There are paired arched windows on the second story. The first story windows are about the same size, but the window on the west side of the entrance is a large single, four light window. The one on the east side matches the second story windows. There are projecting bays on both the west and east elevations. The one on the west is one story with hipped roof; the one on the east is two stories with a flat roof.\

Decorative catch basins and drains are on the porch and at each end of the front facade. A cornerstone with an inscription was placed there by the Masonic Lodge. It belonged to the Masons from 1939 to 1985. This house is one of the three houses in this neighborhood known to be designed by an architect. According to the Marshfield Times, "Contract for building Dr. K.W. Doege's residence on Park Street has been let to T. F. Vannedom." The house was completed in 1908 at a cost of $8,000 for the 4,800 square feet structure."

    It says the porch was altered. I’m curious as to what it may have looked like originally.

    The house looks great with all that nice woodwork and original details. I love the staircase with that large stain glass window. Love that kitchen! Perhaps a better door on the outer door of the air-lock entry?

      It looks like the original porch was expanded on both sides.

      The downstairs interior is beautiful, I didn’t expect that.

      If you go to the Wisconsin Historical Society website Katrina linked in a few comments below, it includes pictures of the original porch. (Apologies; I don’t know how to upload a picture into a comment or I would include the picture here.)

    Lovely, LOVELY woodwork…what a gorgeous house! Marshfield has a renowned research clinic. Can one of you give me more information about that curved fireplace?

    I went on the Wisconsin historical website and found this info…

    So yes, the porch was expanded on both sides. Still a lovely house either way.

    Can someone explain why this home is categorized as Tudor Revival? I see a few rounded details (like fireplace), and on the exterior window frames slightly, but this doesn’t strike me as a typical Tudor.

    The photographer deserves huge congrats for that stunning shot of the house (Photo No. 1) With an opening image like that one just knows that the house is going to be well photographed and it certainly is. While I like most everything about this home, I am hooked on those gorgeous windows (Photo 10). I can visualize myself sitting there watching the world go by. I also like a lot of the wallpaper. Photo 26 shows a stunning space with a lovely stairway. A well photographed and well preserved home.
