During the months of April, May and June we will be hosting a Madison County History series featuring Matthew Urtz, county historian. He will be doing three different talks on Madison County. The first one is Friday, April 12, at 6:30 p.m. He will focus on former residents of Madison County who impacted American history in positive ways.
From politicians and social leaders, to entrepreneurs and scientists, Madison County residents have helped shape America as we know it today. This talk will feature photographs and the stories of some of the most influential residents Madison County has ever known. Mark your calendars now. Stop in and get a brochure listing the dates and descriptions of all three of his talks.
