It’s characterized by historic charm, a vibrant community, and an eclectic mix of architectural styles. Marquette features a blend of Victorian homes, Craftsman-style houses, and contemporary homes.

Its one of Madison’s few neighborhoods with intact buildings from the city’s early history. Two historic districts (Third Lake Ridge Historic District and Marquette Bungalow Historic District) are in place within the neighborhood to preserve the architectural craftsmanship of the buildings. There is also plenty of contemporary housing, including new and rehabbed homes and condos.
