Why Do People Live Here?

Few neighborhoods have a name as unique as VanChaMasShe on Madison’s near west side, but the name makes perfect sense to the neighbors who live here. It dates back to a group of neighbors who lived on Van Hise Avenue, Chamberlain Avenue, Mason Street and Shepard Terrace in the late 1940s. They enjoyed socializing and planning parties together, so they used letters from each street name to dub their social group “VanChaMasShe.” The name stuck, and so did the tight community bond. VanChaMasShe’s Independence Day parade is the city’s longest-running, and neighbors mark their calendars each year for the community’s May Day and Octoberfest celebrations.
