Carriage Houses Recall A Time When Buggies Ruled The Roads. Tucked behind a handful of Madison's old homes are some of the last vestiges of a lost era: carriage houses and horse barns. The few that remain are being used as garages, for storage, or converted into offices or residences. Most were built by members of the higher rungs of Madison society. Most people couldn't even afford a horse, much less a carriage house. They walked, or took a streetcar or train. It was standard practice to build the carriage house on a separate lot.
