Established in the 1890s, University Heights is a U.S. Historic district and is also included on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It’s no surprise then that the streets are full of lovely, older homes with loads of character. An urban neighborhood, the houses are closer together, with smaller, typically beautifully landscaped yards. Residents can walk to the UW Campus, Downtown and to numerous restaurants, shops and businesses in several areas. Combine the convenient location and the beautiful homes, and you get a sought after neighborhood with very little turnover.
