Yesterday my dear mother-in-law and I took a trip to the quaint community of Madison, Georgia. Madison is affectionately nicknamed “The Town Sherman Refused to Burn” and was recognized as the “#1 small town in America” just a few years ago. Madison has over 100 pre-Civil War and Victorian homes. I felt like I had gone back in time. It is the most captivating town I have ever visited!
The historical integrity of the town has been wonderfully maintained. Some of the shoppes carry artwork and crafts made by local artisans. Many of the downtown buildings have been restored and now host a multitude of charming shoppes and eateries.
We spent the morning perusing the stores and walking the tree-lines streets. My favorite part of the day was when we drove down some of the side streets and discovered these breathtaking Southern homes. I am planning on going back in December to take the Christmas tour of these historic homes. You can read more about Madison here.
Wow, so pretty! I love old homes. (o:
So beautiful! I love old Southern homes. My ancestors settled the northeast part of GA, and I’d love to say they had one of these homes – but they didn’t! LOL My great great grandfather was a farmer.

Am sorry about going off topic, but I wish to find out something. My blog tracker shows that my blog has been visited through your page, ie, the refering page to my blog was your blog. I’ve tried hard to figure out how/why, but could not. Can you help me out in this regard?
Once again sorry about the digression:)

OH! Such beautiful mansions! I’d love to see those in person. It sounds like you had a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing the pics.
Those homes are breathtaking! I am jealous~ I would love to go on a Christmas tour of them!!!
Mrs. C. I was scrolling down you blog and came upon this one about Madison. I just left a comment on the one for Show and Tell today.
Our daughter and family live in Madison. We visit it often and I have toured most of the the homes there. It’s a wonderful place to visit. Another good time is the first weekend in May when the spring tour is offered…I have a post in draft form to post shortly about Madison…….
Would love for you to drop by to visit me….Betty @ Country Charm
