Madison Historic District, National Register of Historic Places
One of the first graded schools in the Southeast, the Madison Graded School served that purpose from 1895-1957. In 1976, after an extensive restoration, it opened its doors as the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center. Today, it’s a showplace for local artists, craftsmen and a multitude of cultural and performing arts events. It’s considered a model for other communities seeking to highlight cultural affairs at the local level.
