Built in 1898 of red granite, this was home to the August (Gus) Yunker Family, owner of Pearl Packing Company. The brick front porch and the back two-story addition are not original to the house. The original front porch had a gabled roof and wooden pillars and railings. In the 1930's it was converted to offices for Pearl Packing Company. This company shipped pork products all over the country. It closed in 1972.

In 1974 the Madison Police Dept purchased the building for it's headquarters. At that time a new heating and air conditioning system were installed. Extensive work was done on the home including a new roof. The Madison Courier reported on January 6, 1982 that two of the four chimneys would be taken down and the metal decorative work in the middle of the road will also be removed because it is rusted and can't be repaired. In 1993 the police department gave up the building and it reverted to private ownership.
