Facts for Renters
Madison was named after the president James Madison. It wasn't formally established by settlers until 1867. Yet people began to arrive to the community in the late 1790s.
Many of the settlers earned a living by farming on the plethora of land in the area or being a fisherman at the nearby Lake Erie.
Before the Civil War began, many locals helped free slaves who were running from the South and helped guide them into Canada using the Underground Railroad.
After the invention of the automobile, many settlers continued to come to the area as they could travel farther distances for work, such as to Cincinnati.
Today, the village is known as a quiet and close community that isn't a far commute from the city. Residents get the best of both worlds with rural landscapes and a nearby metropolitan paradise.
