Offering a beautiful country backdrop to history, culture, and nature gives us the reason to boast that "Our Attraction Is Only Natural." Madison County is home to our Four Freedoms Park where the Four Freedoms Monument resides to symbolize the four freedoms outlined in a speech by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and salutes our very own hometown Hero, Capt. Colin P. Kelly, the first hero of World War II. Our rich architectural history shines with the stately Madison County Courthouse, circa 1912, and the real life "To Kill A Mockingbird" style courtroom still in use today. Guided walking tours are available of our downtown historic district that includes Madison's oldest home, the Livingston House, circa 1836, many historic markers and churches. We even have a classic steam engine that was in service in 1919 and is still operational today!
Our western Town of Greenville recently renovated the childhood home of entertainer Ray Charles, a simple beginning for a most talented man, whose life-sized bronze statue is displayed proudly in Haffye Hayes Park on US Highway 90 in Greenville.
Madison County is bordered on three sides by rivers, the Aucilla River to the west, the Withlacoochee to the north, and the Suwannee River to the east. The Madison Blue Springs State Park, a first magnitude spring known worldwide, touts beautiful water, and allows access to the Suwannee River for canoeing, cave diving, fishing, and swimming.
If you enjoy bird watching, we are home to the Ladell Brothers nature center and the Twin Rivers State Forest which also lends itself to horseback riding.
Amanda Norris started Daisy & Dukes Boutique in January of 2014 as an online store while she and her husband, Chris, began renovations to the old Norris Pharmacy (where Norris Cafe is now located.) Her plans were to bring a storefront alongside the cafe in hopes of offering a more “personal” shopping experience to Madison County, than the bigger box stores. In January 2015 she opened alongside Norris Cafe and now operates Daisy and Dukes along with her two employees Kali and Callie. Daisy & Dukes Boutique offers women's apparel, accessories and shoes, as well as men's clothing and hats. They also carry gift items and lunchboxes, as well as some of today's most popular brands such as Lilly Pulitzer, Simply Southern and more! They are currently getting more items for the back-to-school season. Swing by for something for yourself, or a gift for someone you know! Their hours are 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, and from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. Go check them out at 140 SW Range Ave in Madison! If you have any questions, they can be reached by phone at (850) 973-2622.
