Stroll through this time capsule of architecture where over 50 antebellum homes are on display. Venture inside the columned mansions and quaint cottages that local legends once called home. Listen to the stories of Madison’s past and the town’s local hero who pulled his political strings to save the town from a fiery demise. Once you’re full of history, be sure to shop the boutiques and hunt for antiques in the historic shopping district then re-fuel at a unique eatery. Wrap up this perfect visit by soaking up even more southern hospitality in one of Madison’s charming B&B’s.
