Nakoma was platted in 1915 as a picturesque suburb in the country with winding roads, its own water system, its own private bus service and substantial lands set aside for parks, tennis courts and a golf course.
To make this new suburb more appealing to families, the developers even replaced the old schoolhouse with a new grade school in 1917 and built the Nakoma Country Club in 1921. It was one of the most prestigious neighborhood’s of its time as it is today. Some of the finest examples of Colonial, Greek, Tudor Revival, French Provincial, and Prairie style homes are located in Nakoma. The Nakoma Neighborhood: A Walking Tour Guide (2002) showcases twenty-four superb homes in the area. The older, historic neighborhood is also home to Thoreau Elementary School, Nakoma Country Club, and easy access to the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. Resident driven activities and charitable endeavors are spearheaded by The Nakoma League. The Nakoma League, with its first roots as a women’s group, includes all residents of the neighborhood’s 800 homes and continues its mission, “to promote neighborliness and friendliness among its members and to contribute to the welfare of the community.”
