94 Madison Avenue, Franklin Square

The Schoenlein-Mott House in Franklin Square was one of the area's first houses designed specifically as a suburban residence rather than a farmhouse. Built in 1905, the house -- Franklin Square's finest example of Edwardian architecture -- was built by Oscar Mott and his family at Madison Avenue and Roosevelt Street.

At the time of its construction, the Schonlein-Mott House was surrounded by cornfields. The Motts went on to build many of the original houses in the Monroe Street-Madison Avenue area.
