Profile, Statistics and Indicators
||Marquette Neighborhood, located on the near east side, is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Madison. Abundant in nineteenth century architectural styles: Greek Rivival, Italianate, Late Picturesque to Arts & Crafts Bungalows makes this neighborhood one of the few with intact buildings of Madison's early history. Two historic districts, Third Lake Ridge Historic District and Marquette Bungalow Historic District, are in place to preserve the architectural craftmanship of the buildings and places. If one is looking for more modern living quarters, there also are plenty of condos or apartments that have been built or rehabbed.
Bohemian. Hippie. Green. These are some of the names that have been coined for Willy (Williamson) Street area. Locally owned shops, restaurants, and entertainment establishments line the street. Greater Williamson Area Business Association, Common Wealth Development Corporation, and others have been instrumental in keeping the street vibrant.
The Marquette Neighborhood Association (MNA), established in May 1968, has been the force behind citizen involvement and participation. MNA brings discussion on issues affecting the neighborhood to residents and promotes neighborhood family fun activities such as the neighborhood yard sale (June), Waterfront Festival (June), La Fete de Marquette (July), Orton Park Festival (August), and Willy Street Fair (September). The Marquette Neighborhood Association is a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to MNA are tax deductible.
