THE FIRST BRICK HOUSE BUILT IN WAUKESHA COUNTY
Is located on the Main Street in Mukwonago-Put Up by S. Andrews in 1842
The first brick house built in Waukesha county stands in Mukwonago. It was put up in 1842 by Sewall Andrews. It is one and one-half story, size 28x36 and facing on the square, constructed of Mukwonago brick and has limestone trimmings and rock foundation, enclosing a basement that is partitioned and floored with brick. The front door hangs in one of the old style fancy carved frames, all made by hand. At the north it is joined by an addition built by Mr. Andrews some years later as an office for himself. He was in the real estate and money loaning business. As a whole it represents a typical early day farmhouse.
Mr. Andrews is one of the platters of the village, those besides him being Martin Field, Ira Blood and Henry Camp, all of whom are deceased.
Mr. Andrews came to Mukwonago in 1836 and acquired considerable of the property in and about the village. Among which were the flour and saw mills which are still in evidence. He died 20 years ago. His widow, who was his second wife, after several years, married a man by the name of Babcock and is still a resident of the village. At present she and her husband are at their winter home in Florida.
This part of Mr. Andrew's estate went to his son, Lorin, of Minneapolis, a broker. He sold it to Jacob Niver of Waukesha who disposed of the property in 1885 to John McNulty, the present owner.
