Madison in Morgan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Town Park
By 2004 the Downtown Development Authority, through perseverance and acquisition donations, acquired four parcels of property -- equivalent to two city blocks. The next year witnessed the demolition of non-historic structures, plan development, and official groundbreaking. Fundraising by the Madison Bicentennial Committee inspired individuals, families, and foundations to give generously, while professionals and businesses provided in-kind support.
An emphasis on heritage design inspired a recast Cooke Fountain and recreated Victorian Gazebo (both from the town square), a Neoclassical Pavilion, and Park Cottage restoration. Town Park is Madison's Bicentennial legacy -– an outdoor venue, civic gathering ground, development catalyst, greenspace, and downtown landmark -- dedicated in 2009.
Erected 2011 by City of Madison, Madison BiCentennial Commission 1809-2009.
