Eastmorland Neighborhood

Eastmorland is a residential enclave of about 3,400 homes bordered by Milwaukee Street, Stoughton Road, and Cottage Grove Road. Built in the 1950s as a community of starter homes, the average house has about 1,000 square feet of living space on the main floor. Well-made homes, with oak floors and cabinets, make this a highly desirable neighborhood for purchasing an affordable, quality starter home. What can't be seen on a drive-through (or bike-through) of the neighborhood is the tremendous spirit of this area. The Eastmorland Community Association (ECA) began in 1957 and has been instrumental in working to improve the neighborhood and to build relationships among neighbors.

Home Maintenance Tips: Assessing and Addressing Water Damage

With the heavy rainfall we've had this summer, you may have noticed water in places it shouldn't be in your home. Basement cracks, damaged shingles, even improperly sealed vents can provide an entry point for water, causing small spots, stains, or (at the very worst) rot, mold, and possible structural damage to your home.

There are other ways water can wreak havoc in the house, though, that have nothing to do with mother nature. Think about all of the appliances you have in your home that use water- the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the washing machine, the hot water heater- and all of the pipes and fixtures that control the flow of water in your home, like your sinks, showers/baths, exterior faucets, and more!

To make sure you're protecting your biggest asset, we thought we would share some great tips from Ryan Waite of Neckerman Insurance, on checking your home for leaks and drips that happen without the help of mother nature.

        Verona is a center for recreation in the region.  It serves as a crossroads for the Military Ridge State Bike Trail and the National Ice Age Trail.  These trails, which run right through the heart of the City, provide a wonderful natural setting with bicycle and walking connections to Madison and other area communities.  Hundreds of acres of parkland are located in and around the city along with Reddan Soccer Park, the Eagle’s Nest Ice Arena, and Ceniti Park – a baseball, football, and lacrosse complex on East Verona Avenue.

        Verona also offers many excellent public facilities including an impressive library, a popular senior center, numerous park shelters, and a swimming beach located at Fireman’s Park.  The Verona Area School District has a strong reputation for providing quality education and is home to the Verona Performing Arts Center and Natatorium.  Verona is also a great place for business from the specialty shops in our downtown to the corporate headquarters of a worldwide healthcare software company.

        Verona is special community with a lot to offer.  So whether you are planning a visit, conducting business, enjoying a sporting event, or looking for a new home, we hope that you will feel like Verona can be your Hometown U.S.A.
