The City of Madison, with a population of just over 3,000, was designated as one of the “Best Little Towns in Florida” by VISIT FLORIDA, and serves as the county seat for county government. For over 60 years, the city has served as home for North Florida Community College and as an out-campus for St. Leo University. Downtown Madison is filled with quaint gift shops, antique stores, outdoor shops and nice eateries. The downtown area is overflowing with classic 150 to nearly 200 year old homes and buildings.

In the heart of downtown Madison is Four Freedoms Park. The park is a beautifully landscaped city-block area containing a large gazebo and the Four Freedoms monument. This famous monument honors Colin P. Kelley, a former Madison County resident, recognized as the first U.S. hero of World War II and awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his bravery and valor in combat.

Madison is a Military Family and Community Covenant city. The Covenant is a public affirmation and pledge to support military personnel, military families, and veterans.



“The City of the Four Freedoms”

Debris Pick-up – The Department of Transportation has been detailed by the State to remove the hurricane debris from the County and City of Madison.  The city urges all citizens to exercise patience, as this process is going to take a long time.  The date for the debris removal has not been disclosed as of yet. Madison has never experienced anything like this, of this magnitude. Please move your debris as close to the curbside, or edge of the road, without impeding traffic or causing a hazard for drivers.  Please do not burn debris in the city limits, as it is unauthorized.  Furthermore, burning may leap to other piles of debris and mature vegetation that could cause a real catastrophe including home endangerment, injury or loss of life.
