Be sure not to miss Madison as you're traveling down interstate I-20 or Hwy 441! A magical southern city just an hour east of Atlanta, Madison is the town Sherman refused to burn on his infamous March to the Sea. Its National Register Historic District is one of the state's largest collections of 19th century architecture, earning it a place on Budget Travel Magazine's 2012 list as one of "16 Most Picturesque Villages in the World" and Travel Holiday Magazine's 2001 "#1 Small Town in America." Madison combines with nearby Rutledge to house more than 170 antiques dealers, 40 boutiques and 20 unique eateries.

Located right on Madison's downtown square, our Welcome Center is open 7 days a week to assist you with your traveling needs and we're always happy to show you the many things to see and do in our beautiful town!

Come visit us, won't you?!

We were traveling back home from Savannah to Arkansas and decided to take the back roads, stopping wherever we wanted and smell the flowers along the way! We came into Madison just before 10:30 in the morning and stopped at the beautiful Welcome Center. We got to talking with the sweetest lady who was working there and she told us... More

Ar conditioning, water, bathroom and LOTS of information. People were very friendly and helpful. Madison is a beautiful little town, one of the few that survived Gen. Sherman troops intact. The city has also an APP that you can download that guides us through the historical sites.

I enjoyed a lengthy conversation with Billie in the Visitors Center because I was an early bird but businesses didn't open until 10AM. She directed me to galleries and antique stores that matched my interests. She also offered a great walking map and town information brochure.

This is a nice stop to ask questions about local sites to see. The attendant, Sarah Beth was most helpful. The town is exceptionally clean and so much to discover if you like small towns away from all the typical franchises.
