In 1917, Madison Waterworks at Nichols Station pumped 8 million gallons of water a day to feed a growing city. In 2015, its comprehensive renovation pumped new energy into downtown living. Nichols Station completed a substantial rehab of all 34 units. Highlights include new kitchens and new bathrooms, an unparalleled common area above the 1920’s Allis-Chalmers water pump, and the historic look of Nichols Station was preserved.
