Things to See & Do

There’s always something going on in Madison’s Historic District, and for good reason. The town’s collection of beautiful historic buildings reflects nearly every period of development from the early 1800s to today and makes a vibrant backdrop for all kinds of activities.



Stellar Public Meeting Schedule Announced

The City of Madison has been selected as a Stellar Community and is receiving $6 million in grants. Here’s your chance to get involved as several of the projects are proposed for the Historic District.
