Named after President James Madison, Madison, MS dates back to 1856 when the Illinois Central Railroad opened its Madison Station.
Residents from the nearby Madisonville gradually started to move to the new town until it fell victim to the Union Army during the Civil War. In 1864, the city was mostly destroyed after the siege of the nearby capital of Jackson. Thanks to the Madison Land Company, which encouraged northerners to “Go South, and grow up with the country” in 1897, Madison, MS became incorporated into a village.
Located in a county by the same name, Madison, MS has a rich history that began along a railroad track. The city has come a long way since these humble beginnings, having been included on numerous “Best of” lists over the past several years.
Served by the Madison County School District, Madison, MS boasts a student/teacher ratio of just 19:1.
