Ole and Ellen Uglum

The Uglum House is another good example of one variety of the Queen Anne Style popular with Stoughton builders. It has a steep hipped roof and a porch which partially wraps around the front bay. The porch roof is supported by square posts and slender brackets, and is trimmed with a spool-and-spindle balustrade.

Ole was born in Norway and arrived in the United States in 1884. He was a wagon maker. Ellen was born in Wisconsin. The household in 1920 included two teen-aged sons and an elderly lodger, Amund Hanson.

Ole Amble

This house has simple details and good proportions representative of the Classical Revival Style. The square posts, simple porch balustrades, and the prominent pedimented gable are notable features.

Ole Amble was a native of Norway and worked as a laborer for the City of Stoughton. (His last name was sometimes spelled Amle.) In 1920 he lived here with his daughter, Clara.

A.M. Peterson

The Peterson House has much in common with other large Queen Anne Style houses in the district, but its projecting corner bay sets it apart from some. The building rests on a rusticated concrete foundation; by 1907, many builders were using this type of concrete block for foundations instead of limestone. Some was locally manufactured by the Mandt Powell Concrete Company.
