Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Back in 1949, neighbors living on adjoining blocks of Van Hise Avenue, Chambelain Avenue, Mason Street and Shepard Terrace started getting together for a 4th of July block party and parade. They named their informal, close-knit group VanChaMasShe after the first few letters of each street. That neighborhood festival is still going strong today – in fact it's the longest-running 4th of July celebration in Madison – 60 years! Most of our homes were built during the 1950s-1960s. Two-story homes (lots of Cape Cod style) on wooded lots is typical. VanChaMasShe Neighborhood lies directly east of Hoyt Park. Besides easy access to a large park, our neighborhood is close to Hilldale Mall area, West High School, and the University Avenue corridor.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Bluff Street on the north, North Franklin Avenue on the east, Regent Street on the south, and eastern boundary of Hoyt Park 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.
