The Hilltoppers meeting will be held at 11 AM on Monday, August 9 in the church fellowship hall. There will be no food at this meeting. Mask use is recommended per Dane County Public Health.
The speaker will be Ann Waidelich from the Blooming Grove Historical Society. The program will be on the Nathaniel and Harriet Dean house on Monona Dr. Nathaniel built the house in 1856. He was an assemblyman, a regent of the University of Wisconsin, a stockholder in insurance companies and the Park Hotel. He also operated a real estate business. The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. It serves as a "classroom" of pioneer life and also hosts concerts as well as other community activities.
This will be a good history lesson for history buffs as we hear about the activities of Nathaniel Dean and others in Madison life.
