Local Reviews

it is a quiet neighborhood with little traffic. All the neighbors know and care about each other. Homes and lawns are well kept and beautiful

houses and yards are all well maintained. Mix of condos and single family homes. Feels like you're in the country

Walking distance to downtown. Proximity to my work. Proximity to a multitude of restaurants. Friendly neighbors who harvest honey and raise chickens.

I like that it's a small neighborhood with not a lot of people around. I like that the scenery is really nice.

Excellent location to norht or south end of town. 10 minute drive to anywhere in town. Close to all grocery stores.

French fur traders first came to the area in the late 17th century. Lt. Zebulon Pike, for whom Pike's Peak is named, led an expedition to the area in 1805 and gave it the name Prairie La Crosse. The name originates from the bishop's crozier-shaped sticks with which Native Americans played a game. The first permanent settlement, established in 1841, was incorporated as a city in 1856. The city's location made it a center for the fur trading, mining and lumber industries. It remains the largest metropolitan area in western Wisconsin.
