Description 

"Two homes of interesting local leaders, built in the mid-1880's, reflect the coming to maturity of Kaukauna's industrial and commercial communities. The Mathew Meade home, 309 Division Street, overlooks the Meade and Edwards Water Power Canal among the islands of the Fox River which this regional land and river developer owned and brought to productivity...The Captain Meade House at 309 E. Division, is an example of a picturesque Victorian style with three story tower. Characterized by a complex plan and irregular massing including turrets, porches, and wings, examples of Queen Anne architecture predominate this multiple resource nomination."
