Description
Incorporated in 1809, Madison's antebellum houses remain virtually intact, possibly due to the efforts of Sen. Joshua Hill, an anti-secessionist who resigned his seat in Congress rather than vote on the issue of secession. When Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman's Union forces approached Madison in November 1864, Hill and two other men worked to spare the town from the torch. Only the train depot, a cotton gin and a cloth factory were burned.
The Morgan County Courthouse on the downtown square is a blend of formal and country architectural styles; it is open Mon.-Fri. 9-5. Many of the historic houses are open during the Madison Tour of Homes in May and December. Tours of the antebellum homes Rose Cottage and Rogers House are offered year-round; phone (706) 342-9627.
