Our Mission…

The docents, administrators and volunteers of the Madison County Historical Society supply the citizens of Madison county with historical information. This historical information includes Obituaries, Historical Maps, Property Records, Photographs and Artifacts. We are dedicated to the preservation and education of all things relating to the history of Madison County Ohio.

The Madison County Historical Society’s museum, library, and grounds are all invaluable tools that are used to help us accomplish this mission.
