From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Madison is a city in Jefferson County, Indiana, United States, along the Ohio River. The population was 11,967 at the 2010 census. The city is the county seat of Jefferson County. In 2006, the majority of Madison’s downtown area was designated the largest contiguous National Historic Landmark in the United States—133 blocks of the downtown area is known as the Madison Historic Landmark District.
"The Madison Historic District displays a continuity of all architectural styles from founding ca. 1817 - ca. 1939. Impressive numbers of significant buildings especially Federal, Greek Revival and Italianate styles. Mansions, row houses and shotgun worker housing represent all socio-economic groups. Range of domestic, commercial, public, religious and industrial buildings reflect small-town American values. Remarkably intact infrastructure from 19th century including culverts, retaining walls, curbs and gutters, bridges, road grades and alignment. Existing neighborhood and houses identified with specific leaders of Underground Railroad activities through end of Civil War.(nps.gov)"
