Madison Historical Society

Madison Historical Society

The purpose of the Madison Historical Society is to assemble, record and preserve all matters of historical interest
concerning Madison and its residents.

The Society was formed in 1922 when several public-minded citizens organized to preserve the old Bottle Hill Tavern, formerly located at the southeast corner of Waverly Place and Main Street. There were 50 Charter Members and 15 Life Members who purchased the Tavern and had the structure moved east along Main Street to the present site of its replica (which houses a bank).

We hope you enjoy our work.
