Madison Tennessee has a rich 150 year old history. Located just eight miles from downtown Nashville, Madison has grown into a thriving community with 16 schools and over 36 churches. The restaurants are a mixture of popular new eateries, Southern cuisine and Hispanic treats. The Madison Chamber of Commerce keeps the city fresh and is constantly adding economic and civic value to the area. Each year Madison hosts a Bluegrass Festival as well as other community functions. Madison has a small town atmosphere, but it?s a growing and thriving part of Metropolitan Nashville.
Madison has an ethnically diverse population, with a large Hispanic community. Madison has several small strip centers that contain Hispanic-American businesses and retail shops. The area of Nashville known as Inglewood separates Madison from Nashville and Gallatin Pike is the main road that runs through downtown Madison. There are a couple of public parks in Madison; Cedar Hill Park and Madison Park are enjoyed by the local residents, as well as tourists. Madison?s neighbor Old Hickory is one of the boarders of Old Hickory Lake, so fishing, boating, swimming and hiking are only fifteen minutes away. Madison is the home of a National Cemetery, which is a national tourist attraction, because hundreds of Civil War soldiers, as well as soldiers from other world conflicts are buried in this beautiful and peaceful setting. The famous Opryland Hotel is located on Briley Parkway, which intersects Gallatin Pike in Madison, so all the beauty and entertainment of that complex is only ten minutes away. Nashville wouldn't be the same without Madison.
