Madison in Morgan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
During Madison's Victorian heyday, the lack of a hotel was intolerable so a three-story, high style structure emerged -- the Turnell-Butler Hotel (1892, burned 1930). Built on the former Madison Hotel site, the new landmark would later be known variously as the Hotel Turnell, Hotel Madison, and new Morgan Hotel. This impressive establishment encompassed 40 rooms with private baths, a large dining room, and even a third-floor ballroom.
Erected 2011 by City of Madison, Madison BiCentennial Commission 1809-2009.
