More About Vilas Neighborhood

The tiny Monroe Street Branch Library serves as a throwback to yesteryear and central hub for Vilas’ residents. Architectural styles are abundant and varied, ranging from Victorian and Queen Anne, to Craftsman, Georgian Revival and Tudor. As a result, Vilas Neighborhood is especially wonderful for those who want to own a home in a historic, yet central, area. Wingra Park National Register Historic District covers a portion of Vilas neighborhood and a federal tax credit program is available to assist property-owners with the costs of renovating their historic properties. Sights and sounds in the Vilas Neighborhood range from the roar of the lions at nearby Henry Vilas Zoo, enthused Badger fans making their way to Camp Randall on game day, pedestrians leisurely strolling down Monroe Street to grab a treat, pick up flowers, shop for groceries, or choose a gift from a wide variety of quaint shops, to the laughter of frisbee players in nearby Wingra Park and the gentle paddling of boats on Lake Wingra. An extra bonus worth mentioning: an entrance to the U.W. Arboretum's six-mile loop around Lake Wingra is located within the neighborhood's borders, thus providing easy access to walkers, bikers, and runners.
