Madison Candy Co. - Williamson St

This area of Madison was once a manufacturing center of town. Most of the factories are long gone, but hints of its past remain. The former Madison Candy Co. now contains offices and restaurants. A few blocks west, the former Machinery Row now houses a bike shop, offices and a raved-about restaurant. Some people may call it gentrifying, and maybe it is - but the fact is that these former factories were empty for a long time, and as the economy changes, the building use changes. An interesting tidbit - though the Madison Candy Co. is no more, there are several gourmet chocolatiers in Madison. Mmmm....

What do you think is the most interesting building in Madison, besides the capitol?
