Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Westmorland is a friendly community on Madison's West side. Our neighbors share a broad range of professions and interests. Nearby Glenway and Odana Golf Courses, arboretum, zoo and parks provide many recreational opportunities. Tree–lined streets, a variety of architectural styles and simple affordability of our homes make our neighborhood ideal for both young families and older individuals. Our neighborhood association strives to bring together the young and old. We have our very own Westmorland Walking Band! We host a variety of social events such as Winter Play Day, Summer Garden Tour, and Halloween Parade and Party. In addition, we sponsor the Speedy Weedy Dandelion Digging Contest and Winter House Decorating Contest. We are also proud to coordinate a Westmorland Health Fund Drive with proceeds donated to charitable organizations. Westmorland Neighborhood is home to numerous examples of one of the most unique housing structures in the US. Lustron houses are prefabricated porcelain steel houses that were constructed between 1949 and 1950. Out of the 18 Lustron homes in Madison, seven are still part of our neighborhood's rich history.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Mineral Point Road on the north, Glenway Golf Course boundary on the east, Southwest Bike Path on the south, South Midvale Boulevard on the west
Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
