Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The Schenk's Atwood neighborhood was one of the first suburban areas in Madison to be located far enough away from the Capitol Square to establish a separate commercial district of its own. The hub of this district is known as Schenk's Corners and such buildings as the former Security State Bank, the Eastwood (now the Barrymore) theater, and the Schenk family's own store building still serve the diverse residential neighborhoods that grew up around them.
Neighborhood Boundaries: East Washington Avenue and Chicago Northwestern Railroad on the north, Starkweather Creek on the east, Lake Monona on the south, First Street, Helena Street, Russell Street and Schurz 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.
Recent Accomplishments:
Neighborhood Events: Annual Economic Forum, Schenk-Atwood Revitalization Association meetings, Atwood Summerfest
Places of Interest: Schenk's Corners, Atwood Community Center, Barrymore Theater.
