Indian Hills
The Indian Hills subdivision west of the Blackhawk Country Club and just north of University Avenue opened in 1953. It was designed by the Wisconsin State Planning Board as a model subdivision of single-family homes for middle to upper-middle income families. Lots were staggered so that each house would look over or between its neighbors.
