A little about Madison

If Norman Rockwell would have visited Madison, he would have definitely painted the line-up of red-white-and-blue flags flying from the Greek Revival, Neoclassical Victorian and Romanesque homes along sun-dappled, oak-lined streets in and around the historic district. There is no doubt about it: Madison is Rockwell Country, with a twist of "Pleasantville". lthough Madison is most famous for its homes, it is more than a place with a well-documented historic pedigree. The vibrant downtown boasts over 165 antiques dealers, boutique shops, unique eateries – plenty to keep the most avid of shoppers and gourmands busy. The city also hosts food, art, music and agricultural festivals throughout the year, many of which are centered around Madison’s Town Park.

The history of Madison

While many believe that Sherman spared the town because it was too beautiful to burn during his March to The Sea, the truth is that Madison was home to pro-Union Senator Joshua Hill. Hill had ties with General Sherman's brother at West Point, so his sparing the town was more political than appreciation of its beauty. Currently, Madison has one of the largest historic districts in the state of Georgia, and tourists from all over the world come to marvel at the antebellum architecture of the homes. Madison is the home of Southern Cross Guest Ranch, the only dude ranch in Georgia.
