With Madison’s rapid growth due to the expansion of the University of Wisconsin and state government in the early 20th century came the development of the Nakoma suburban neighborhood. It’s hard to believe this neighborhood was once outside of Madison and only reachable by car because the popular trolley never reached it. The rolling hills of the neighborhood add to the natural beauty of the area surrounding Lake Wingra and the duck ponds. You can still find Ho Chunk artifacts all over this area, a reminder that this land was always popular.
With the addition of the Nakoma Country and Golf Club the prestige of the neighborhood exploded. Nakoma had always been popular with families due to the schools and the many parks in the area but the Club added a new attraction to the many people moving to the area. It’s central location on Madison’s west side with major streets in and out, made Nakoma ideal for university and government officials. With building restrictions architectural harmony was kept intact. Nakoma contains some of the city’s finest Period Revival residences. The various designs include Colonial and Tudor Revival, Prairie School, Craftsman Bungalow, and Modern. Three hundred and twenty one Colonial Revival style residences reinforce the architectural unity of the Nakoma neighborhood. Examples occur in every part of the neighborhood, many of which were designed by the best local architects of the time. Nakoma was one of Madison’s finest and most successful planned suburbs and it remains one of the area’s most desired places to find a home.
