Lowell Damon Home

Lowell Damon Woods Neighborhood Association Inc. (LDWNA), organized in 1995, is one of twenty-five independent neighborhood associations in Wauwatosa. LDWNA also referred to as “Damon Woods,” is a non-profit organization of volunteers from the neighborhood.

Our neighborhood is named for Lowell Damon, a pioneer settler of Wauwatosa whose home at 2107 Wauwatosa Ave. is the oldest in the city. Part of that house is a museum owned by the Milwaukee County Historical Society. Much of the land in our neighborhood once belonged to the Damon family.

LDWNA is an apolitical organization of residents in about 500 households south and west of Wauwatosa’s City Hall and Public Library. We are bounded on the north by North Ave; on the east by Wauwatosa Ave.; on the south by, but not including, Hillcrest; and on the west by the west side of 83rd St. Members of the neighborhood association pay annual dues.

The board of directors elects board officers at a meeting in early fall. Board meetings are open to all neighbors and are scheduled six times a year. You can find upcoming meeting dates and locations in the newsletter and on Upcoming Events.
