Madison has the largest designated historic district in Georgia, which encompasses most of the town. During the Civil War, Sherman's Army spared Madison destruction because it was the home of pro-Union Senator Joshua Hill.

Downtown Madison

The Community

Successfully blending old with new and southern tradition with high-tech, Madison-Morgan County, Georgia, has been bringing tourists, newcomers, and local residents together in a unique, unspoiled atmosphere.
Madison's pre Civil War and Victorian homes, as well as its tastefully restored downtown, offer a wide range of shops, tastes, sights and services that delight visitors from this country and abroad, as they travel along Georgia’s Antebellum Trail, the Georgia’s Antique Trail and the Historic Heartland Travel Region.

Shopping, dining, and overnight accommodations support the bustling hospitality and recreation industries. Nearby Lake Oconee is a favorite retreat for Atlantans and snowbirds alike with its world class golf and tennis resorts.
The historic city and county are often said to be like "walking into a Norman Rockwell Painting." Life in Madison and Morgan County moves with a slower, more personal pace. Neighbors and friends still visit with one another under the shade trees that line Main Street. Farmers come to town on Saturdays. People here are genuinely friendly and will stop and open a door for you or speak when you walk by.
