Why Do People Live Here?
Marquette’s roots stretch back more than 150 years. Its history is reflected in turn-of-the-century architecture that lines its streets and the decidedly bohemian vibe that harkens back to the 1960s. Marquette is located on the shores of Lake Monona and covers the northeastern quarter of Madison’s famed Isthmus. Marquette is a self-contained neighborhood with vibrant commercial districts that boast local eateries, saloons and theaters. Still, it’s close proximity to nearby communities is among its greatest traits. Marquette is located a few blocks north of the Capitol Square. State Street, the State Capitol and the University of Wisconsin are just a short walk or bus ride away. And the city bike path, which extends through the neighborhood in both directions, will make that commute a little more enjoyable. The annual Waterfront Festival, Le Fete de Marquette, Orton Park Festival and Willy Street Fair offer some of Madison’s most unique neighborhood events.
