Marquette/Williamson Street Real Estate
The properties in the Marquette/Williamson Street area offer turn-of-the-century architecture and old world craftsmanship that can't be found in the homes of today. Some of the buildings in the neighborhood even date back to the late 1800s. Because of this, many Marquette/Willy Street homes belong to either locally or nationally designated historic districts. In addition to single family dwellings, the Williamson Street area offers a good inventory of multifamily income properties. This part of Madison also features an impressive selection of waterfront homes with southern-exposure views of Lake Monona. This is an area with modestly-sized lots and a high degree of urban density, so no matter where you live in the Marquette neighborhood you're never more than a short walk away from Williamson Street, Lake Monona, or a local park.

From the Marquette neighborhood you can even take your ride all the way around the lake.
