The Town of Madison is centrally located within 30 miles of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point, North Carolina and Martinsville and Danville, Virginia and is accessible to major markets and urban amenities. Future Interstate 73 (currently US 220) passes through Madison and provides easy access to one of the major north-south transportation arteries on the east coast and to the Piedmont Triad International Airport.  

The Town possesses a unique historic charm and hosts two historic districts that are included on the State and National Registries.  Our Historic Downtown Shopping District offers numerous restaurants, craft shops, florists and other unique businesses.  Outside of our downtown shopping district are three additional shopping centers and numerous restaurants. 

Idol Park is the place to be for ballgames, picnics, walking trails and all outdoor fun and features a covered picnic shelter, playground, and basketball court.  For those who enjoy the beauty and relaxation of the river, the Dan River is perfect for canoeing and kayaking and provides two local access points for convenience. 

One of Madison’s greatest achievements is the quality of life presented to every individual that comes into our Town.  Our Town is full of friendly people, always willing to lend a helping hand to their neighbor or anyone in need.  Very rarely can you take a walk without someone stopping you to just say hello or asked how your family is doing.

We hope that you visit Madison and enjoy our historic downtown and friendly atmosphere that will help provide a relaxing day for you and your family.  You will be captivated by the charm, beauty and uniqueness of our Town.
