To make this new suburb more appealing to families, the developers even replaced the old schoolhouse with a new grade school in 1917 and built the Nakoma Country Club in 1921. It was one of the most prestigious neighborhood's of its time as it is today. Some of the finest examples of Colonial, Greek, Tudor Revival, French Provincial, and Prairie style homes are located in Nakoma. The Nakoma Neighborhood: A Walking Tour Guide (2002) showcases twenty-four superb homes in the area. The older, historic neighborhood is also home to Thoreau Elementary School, Nakoma Country Club, and easy access to the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. Resident driven activities and charitable endeavors are spearheaded by The Nakoma League. The Nakoma League, with its first roots as a women's group, includes all residents of the neighborhood's 800 homes and continues its mission,  to promote neighborliness and friendliness among its members and to contribute to the welfare of the community. </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="col1">Neighborhood Boundaries:</td> <td>Illinois Central Railway and Odana Road on the north, Manitou Way on the east, Mohawk Drive on the south, and Whenona Drive and Waban Hill (including Hiawatha Circle) on the west</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="col1"><a href="http://www.cityofmadison.com/ni" target="_blank">Neighborhood Statistics Indicators:</a></td> <td>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.
