University South

University South
Neighborhood Association

The mission of the association is to promote an atmosphere of unity, cooperation, openness, and friendliness within the neighborhood.
(Lincoln-Bellemeade Neighborhood Association was merged into University South Neighborhood Association.)

University South Neighborhood Association, named for its proximity to University of Evansville, was founded in 1997 as a neighborhood watch group. It includes more than 700 residential middle-class homes, offering a mix of owner-occupied and rental units.

Castle house in University South Neighborhood

Settled in the early decades of the 20th Century, homes represent a diverse range of small to medium-sized early 20th Century architectural styles, including a unique “Storybook Style” stone castle, two “Lustron” homes (Post World War II assembly line manufactured metal cottages), some basic two-story homes, single-story cottages and “ranch” style structures.

One architectural style in particular – the American Bungalow – predominates. Some have been lovingly restored by owners with a sense of history. One of our bungalows is commonly known as “The Rosanne House,” because the front exterior appears in the opening scenes of that popular TV show that ran from 1988 through 1997.

The Rosanne House

The southern perimeter of our neighborhood also includes a few diminutive post WWII duplexes.

USNA grew substantially in 2017 when we merged with the Lincoln-Bellemeade Neighborhood Association giving us boundaries that now include the south side of Lincoln Avenue, the north side of Washington Avenue, the west side of Weinbach Avenue and the east side of Lodge Avenue. While the neighborhood itself is primarily residential it does include UE’s Melvin Peterson Art Gallery, Redeemer Lutheran Church, New Horizons Christian Church and a few small businesses and restaurants.

The primary function of USNA is to promote good relationships among neighbors and address the happily very few “issues” that come up here. Historically we have met the first Tuesday of every month except December, in a Lustron Home just north of New Horizons Fellowship Church of God on Washington Avenue. We have been dormant since March 2020 but hope to be back up and running this fall.
