Madison, Georgia  June 9/10 2005

Marcia and  I had occasion to stop over in Madison on the way to pick up two of our grandchildren who live in Macon, Georgia.  We found Madison to be quite charming and most friendly.  Below are some memories of the brief stopover.  If you want more info about this place check out the town's website or e-mail me and I'll try to put you on to something.

Madison is just off I-20 about one hour east of Atlanta and lies along an old stagecoach route and rail line connecting to Augusta.  Photos of a downtown street and one of the old mansions are above.  I did not take many photos of the town but will do so as the historic district is quite charming as well as impressive.  

The Photos above are of the Brady Inn in Madison, Georgia.  The Inn is composed of two Victorian style houses joined by a walkway.  We had a marvelous time there and plan to return to complete an all too short visit to the town.  Our hosts were most gracious and breakfast (above  with Marcia) was superior.  The background photo is one of the flowers from the yard. Click on the link above and view the website for the inn. If you are in the middle Georgia area, I suggest you give them a try.  Our innkeepers suggested the place below.  And I recommend highly!!!

"The Place" to dine in Madison.  A great restaurant, convenient to downtown is "The Ice House".  Delicious food and very reasonable.  Our meal was: Bacon wrapped shrimp in a cheese sauce for an appetizer,  Marcia had salmon and I had one of (if not) the best pork chops ever.  Bread, dipping oil and a house salad accompanied by a bottle of Pinot Grigio...and all for less than $60.   Marcia is pictured with Kimberly, our most delightful waitress.  This was a Thursday evening and you can see the crowd...must be The Place!!!
