Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 29, 1964):
From 1905 until his death, this was the residence of Robert M. La Follette (1855-1925). La Follette served in the House of Representatives (1885-91), but did not emerge as a major force in governmental reform until his service as Governor of Wisconsin (1901-06). As a U.S. Senator (1906-25), he continued to champion "progressive" causes and was the Progressive Party candidate for President in 1924, the year before his death.
