Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Langdon Street acts as the spine of this architecturally rich area adjacent to the university campus. Originally, this neighborhood was dominated by the large Victorian period homes of university faculty members and Madison's elite. As the university expanded around the turn of the century, however, many of the older buildings gave way to the fine Period Revival style fraternity and sorority houses for which this area is now best known. The Langdon Street National Register Historic District was established to provide tax incentives to property-owners in their efforts to preserve and rehab existing historic housing stock. The national historic district is roughly bounded by Lake Mendota on the north, Wisconsin Avenue on the east, rear yards of properties on the south side of Langdon Street on the south, and North Lake Street on the west. State-Langdon Neighborhood Association first formed in 1979. After several years of inactivity, it reactivated in 2008. The neighborhood association represents the predominately student population living within the area. This is one central city neighborhood that has redevelopment pressures.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Lake Mendota on the north, North Carroll, South Broom, N Frances Streets on the east, Regent Street on the south, North Park Street 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.
