I was on a few days adventure seeing the real Florida. I drove straight to the Four Freedoms park and monument by providence. Then I walked around their little downtown and found this museum. An older man (I'm 58 years old) was there and he and I had a grand conversation. He let me just look around and take a few pictures. I enjoyed talking with you, sir. I enjoyed the town and especially the rural areas surrounding Madison. Thank you for your honesty and open integrity. The little museum was pretty damned cool too.

A local newspaper publisher and friend of mine had meandered for about an hour through the undisturbed rural Florida countryside arriving at Madison, Florida to explore a treasure trove of rare and antiquarian books on a pleasant Saturday afternoon. While we learned the rare book repository had closed Saturday afternoons, we ventured down main street to a corner museum of sorts known as the Treasures of Madison county. Anyone with even the slightest interest in what Floridians from an earlier time experienced, will be amazed at the trove of well documented and carefully preserved original artifacts depicting important and historical links to past generations of local pioneer families and their descendants. Even our friendly and informed host at the museum was a descendant of early families who settled in the neighboring community of Greenville. In a fitting example of the courtesy still found in many smaller rural Florida communities, our museum host called the proprietor of the rare book depository, and she was patient and kind enough to open the store after closing, and let us browse for the ensuing two hours. I am certain if you venture over to Madison, Florida you'll realize as we did, that the time there was well spent! Oh, you may want to patronize the local authentic Mexican diner who served us a scrumptious lunch!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour a few days ago and very much recommend it to others. it was an easy walk with several beautiful and historic homes opened to us. The narrated history of each home and the church was both informative and entertaining!

Bill Bunting was the person on-hand the day I visited and he was most helpful in his recollections of Madison in the 20th century. And you could spend hours poring over the many articles preserved from the past. Definitely a vintage find!

Loved seeing old military uniforms, how turpentine was harvested and what a Tobacco Barn looked like 100 years ago!

I went to vote during my lunch hour and when I was finished I had time to spare so this being a truly wonderful small town I saw that the Treasures of Madison was open. I was greeted by a very friendly lady who was my guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the real history of Madison. The artifacts were in fantastic shape and the design of the museum was well laid out.

I highly recommend coming to the Treasures of Madison and make plans to stay longer than I could have today. I will definitely be back on a regular basis.

In a tiny town in Northern Florida the Treasures of Madison County is a hidden gem of history and memorabilia from the 19th and 20th centuries. The docents are very knowledgeable about the items on display and are willing to share personal memories of events during their lifetimes. The range of items varies between military history and agricultural life to toys and games and domestic items. The photographs, art work, yearbooks, and newspaper articles could keep you occupied for quite a long time. The Treasures building is located in downtown Madison and there are lovely antique shops and a beautiful park to explore if you have time.

The history of Madison Florida. The museum has objects that soldiers have donated from world war 1 , world war 2, Korea, and Vietnam, as well as military uniforms and other military objects. It has objects from the old south, which include Civil war objects. It has old antiques from Madison`s past. A great walk back in time for the little country town.
