Spring Harbor Neighborhood

One of Madison's largest and most populous neighborhoods, Spring Harbor spans the picturesque southwestern corner of Lake Mendota. Spring Harbor area has a little bit of everything that makes Madison great – abundant waterfront property, a variety of schools and public amenities, and several thriving commercial districts. Standing on the shoreline, the view across the water is of the forested University of Wisconsin campus, rather than the downtown, adding to the secluded appeal of Spring Harbor. The neighborhood covers more than 400 acres and is home to more than 1,200 households. Single-family homes and several condo developments makeup the housing stock. The Spring Harbor Neighborhood came of age during the 1950’s, as one-half of all homes were constructed during that decade. Currently, 91% of the neighborhood land is dedicated to housing, with a large mix in type, size, and style of units available. Our neighborhood has access to three major natural resources within its boundaries: 1) Lake Mendota; 2) Merrill Spring; and 3) Kettle Pond. Historic Madison, Inc. has designated four neighborhood sites as historically significant, including two areas containing Native American Effigy Mounds, the Hickory Hill House and the John R. Commons House.
