2014 Madison in May Spring Tour of Homes & Gardens

Madison GA – For whatever reason General Sherman didn’t burn Madison and for that we are eternally grateful. Here are some scenes from the 2014 spring tour.

The Madison Oaks Inn (Poullain Heights, 1905) is a lovely bed-and-breakfast near downtown Madison, Ga. You can stay for a night or forever. The property, with swimming pool, is on the market for somewhere north of one mil (as in 1,000,000).

The term “kicked out of bed” takes on new meaning at the Madison Oaks Inn, a bed-and-breakfast located in the home originally named Poullain Heights.

Sherman saw to it that his men received communion in the Madison Presbyterian Church in 1864. The troops promptly took the congregation’s silver communion service. Yankees.
