About eight months ago, Theresa and I were traveling through Georgia (again) and came across this little town called Madison. It's a beautiful town with a lot of history.
Madison is named after President James Madison, who was the newly elected president in the U.S. when the town was founded. People came to Madison from neighboring states and were deeded land from the Georgia land lottery.
Another interesting tidbit from history is that General William Tecumseh Sherman spared Madison in his infamous March to the Sea. While he burned other nearby towns, and laid waste to Atlanta, Madison was shown some mercy. The reason is because Georgia had a pro-Union Congressman who was friends with Sherman's brother.
The population of Madison in 1880 was just under 2,000. In 2020, it was about 4,500. That's not a lot of growth in 140 years. Still, there's a lot to like about this small antebellum town.
For starters, Madison has one of the largest historical districts in Georgia. That alone makes it worth visiting. The architecture is incredible, the culture is peachy, and the history is extraordinary. There are very few ways to go wrong in Madison, Georgia.
Check out our video the city's historic walking tour. It's our third most popular video to date.
