John Rankin Home

Once located at the southeast corner of Broadway and Madison, this unique home was built by John Rankin, father of Jeanette Rankin, the first congresswoman from Montana, and  her famous brother Wellington Rankin.  It, tragically, was razed in 1962 so Madison Street could be widened to accommodate the new bridge.
