1. Lee's Academy Marker
Inscription. Founded by Captain Frederick Lee and other pillars of the community as a privately funded co-educational institution for higher education, Lee’s Academy provided students with a level of instruction beyond the basic rudimentary subjects available in the town’s common schools. Although primarily attended by Madison residents, the school also served students from other parts of the state and country.

In 1889 Lee’s Academy became part of the Madison School system and served as the town’s first High School. The building was purchased and restored by the Madison Historical Society in 1923.
