FEATURED STORY

MADISON COUNTY: AN OVERVIEW

Officially formed in 1823 and named for President James Madison, the County was originally home to several Native American tribes, a heritage that, today, is still near and dear to the hearts of the residents. From the early canals of the mid 19th century to the expansion of railroads and the natural gas boom, Madison County has a rich history of industry, growth and innovation. In the early 1900′s that innovative spirit led to the creation of Delco Remy, which would serve as a catalyst for making the community one of the fastest growing auto manufacturing hubs in the nation. The prosperity of the 50s and 60s helped to support the vast infrastructure, schools, universities and workforce that Madison County offers today.

Madison County is home to roughly 130,000 residents and covers its landscape with both urban centers and rural farmland. A blend of emerging technologies, arts and entertainment, healthcare and manufacturing, drive the local economy. Several international, multiple national and many regional and local businesses are headquartered in the County. Residents and visitors enjoy a vibrant and robust park system, great educational opportunities, top notch entertainment and rich arts and culture offerings. The County continues to look forward as we prepare for a new and exciting era in our history.

Through our ups and our downs, our triumphs and challenges, Madison County has endured. The same innovative spirit and craftsmanship that helped us build canals, railroads and cars is leading the way into a bright future. We envision a Madison County that leads the region in new technology, fosters the creativity of our artists and craftspeople and ultimately, a Madison County that offers a rich quality of life for our residents. Whether its the Mounds Lake project or the Innovation Center or the hundreds of innovative ideas that take root here every day, we are the dreamers of big dreams. Those dreams will one day be a reality. Join us for the adventure!
