Madison Station Historic District

Roughly bounded by Wall Triana Hwy., Mill Rd., Church St., Maple St., Martin St., and Bradley St., Madison, Alabama


The "Downtown" area of Madison is built around the railroad. The station, no longer extant, appears to have been the center of town. There are many very attractive homes surround the station area. Many are marked with small, uniform signs.
