Historic Madison Indiana

Enjoy an old fashioned Christmas during our annual Nights Before Christmas Candlelight Tour of Homes. You’ll see public historic sites, private homes and a local church, most of which are in Madison's National Historic Landmark District. All of the sites capture the spirit of the holidays, each in their own unique way.

Take time for a carriage or trolley ride along our festive Main Street. Enjoy holiday treats at one of our restaurants and wineries. Come early and shop at Madison’s antique shops and specialty stores. Spend a relaxing overnight at one of our bed & breakfasts, hotels or guestcottages. Celebrate the season with us!
