Why Do People Live Here?

Parks, schools, retailers and employers all surround the Sherman neighborhood on Madison’s north side. Sherman has been at the center of city plans to rejuvenate the north side of Madison. Those plans brought improved streetscapes and pedestrian features to every street that borders the neighborhood — Northport Drive, Sherman Avenue and Packers Avenue. Landscaping was added and trees were planted along the right-of-way, pedestrian footpaths and pockets of green space were added throughout the neighborhood, bike lanes were added to the streets, and distinctive signs and artwork now brands the area as a gateway into the city. The NorthGate Shopping Center located at the foot of Sherman’s residential area changed hands and new development breathed life into retailers there that include restaurants, ethnic markets and retailers. The site of a proposed North Transfer Metro Station commuter rail stop at Dane County Regional Airport is also nearby.


What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?

Sherman was developed as a suburban community of single-family homes after World War II, although some of the homes were built in the 1930s and feature distinctive pre-war architecture. The homes south of Vahlen Street were built in the 1930s and 1940s. Many of the other homes in the neighborhood were built throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The area is popular for young families because of its affordable housing stock. Sherman Middle School plays a central role in the residential portion of the neighborhood. The southern neighborhood also includes a pocket of single-family homes along Sherman Avenue.
