Central and the Sesquicentennial Series

Madison is celebrating its 150th year as a city this year. In conjunction with this sesquicentennial, last January Madison magazine began publishing a 15-part decade by decade series looking at Madison history. Two of the features in this series examine events that may be of particular interest to Madison Central High School alumni. In June 2005, writer Stu Levitan, took a look at the 1900s, including the events leading up to the opening of the new, Cass Gilbert-designed high school on Wisconsin Avenue, as well as the development of Vilas Park. In July 2005, Levitan took a look at the 1910s, including events in the Greenbush neighborhod. To read the online version of these features, click HERE for the 1900s and HERE for the 1910s.
