Tenney-Lapham Homes & Architecture

Most Tenney-Lapham homes date back to the turn of the 20th century around the time that Tenney Park was built and the time when the Fuller & Johnson Company, located at the corner of East Wash and North Dickinson, was at its peak in terms of growth. A rich variety of homes—both rather grand and quite modest—were built as a result, including some spectacular lakefront homes found in the Sherman Avenue Historic District. There is strong demand for even the most modest of Tenney-Lapham's older homes, especially ones located on any of its quiet side streets.

Today, change is happening on a significant scale in the Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood. While the economic heart of the neighborhood remains the East Johnson Business District where you can shop for groceries, buy antiques, purchase wines and spirits, and more, a number of buildings are being erected on the East Washington corridor, causing an influx of new businesses and restaurants, not to mention high-rise apartment dwellers. Fiesta Foods, a full-service grocery store, is also being built to cater to area residents and passers-through. Older Tenney-Lapham homes, as well as the eclectic older business district, help maintain the historic neighborhood feel while the new construction breathes new life in the form of restaurants and other businesses. To be sure, now is an exciting time to live in Tenney-Lapham neighborhood.

Tenney-Lapham Recreation & Lifestyles

Tenney-Lapham is considered a highly walkable, bike-able, and bus-able neighborhood. In fact, one could argue you could give up your car and live quite comfortably provided you’re an avid walker, biker, or you enjoy taking the bus. The bike lane runs the entire length of Tenney-Lapham, connecting downtown Madison to the Yahara River bike bath. Buses run the length of East Johnson and beyond, transporting you to and from the Capitol and beyond. In addition, the neighborhood provides easy access to Lake Mendota and the Yahara River, Madison’s extensive bike system, as well as easy access to three different city parks situated along the Yahara River Parkway. Popular James Madison Park, Reynolds Park, and Tenney Park offer beaches, boat rentals, volleyball and tennis courts. When Lake Mendota freezes over, residents enjoy ice skating, ice fishing, iceboating, and iceboarding.

If you’re a sports enthusiast or you like being outdoors, you’ll love living near historic Breese Stevens Field where you can watch East High host football games, the 56’ers show off their soccer prowess, and The Radicals play a mean game of ultimate frisbee. Tenney-Lapham is also the epicenter of the unicycling and bike polo world. Reynolds Field is also a great place for a pick-up game of soccer, ultimate Frisbee, or disc golf.
