Historic preservation has long been a priority in Wisconsin. In 1983, the Wisconsin Architects Foundation received the Joseph J. Stoner House as a gift from Madison Newspapers Inc. The imposing two-story Italianate structure was built in 1855 of indigenous sandstone, and renovated with the help of the Historic Preservation Division of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, the National Park Service, and the city of Madison, along with contributions from architects and friends throughout the state.
Wisconsin issued its first license on January 1, 1917.
