If you look up Madison, Georgia on Tripadvisor.com, there is a reason the Madison – Morgan County Welcome Center is ranked as the number one attraction!

Welcoming visitors in the heart of Madison 7 days a week, 360 days a year, the welcoming and knowledgeable staff shares their love of this small town and the many unique experiences guests can have here. Visitors can also discover information on other top destinations across the region, as the Welcome Center is a state-designated Regional Visitor Information Center displaying  brochures and guides from across the state. It’s the perfect place to kick off a small town escape, chatting with the local staff to learn the most popular attractions and hidden gems or relaxing with a detailed guide in the rocking chairs out front.

Constructed in 1887, the Welcome Center building itself has a unique history of helping. The building originally served as a city hall and firehouse back when fire engines were drawn by horse and buggy, the reminders of which can be seen with a firepole that still stands inside.

Make sure your first stop in Madison or Morgan County is at the Welcome Center, to discover why visitors and residents love this town – and why you will too!

Welcome Center COVID-19 Safety Policies and Procedures​

  • Built in 1887, our historical building makes up in character what it lacks in space! Given our small center, we are currently limiting visitors to 2 at a time. If 2 visitors are already inside when you arrive, please relax for a few minutes in our rocking chairs outside and take in the vibrant downtown Madison square.​
  • Once inside, you may first notice the floor markings designed as guides to help enforce social distancing. Please stay at least six feet from other guests and our Welcome Center staff.​
  • The City of Madison requires masks to be worn in all public buildings. If you do not have a mask, we are providing them free to our guests while supplies last. Please ask our staff for your free mask.​
  • Our public restrooms are open. If the stalls are full, please do not wait inside the restrooms. Let’s give our other guests privacy and space. And by all means, like your Mama taught you, please wash your hands!​
  • We know we have a lot of great material in our center. Please take as many brochures or magazines as you would like; it’s all free! But please take what you touch to limit the spread of germs.​
  • We ask if you are not feeling well or if someone in your household is sick, please stay at home! Come back and visit when everyone is feeling all better.​
  • And lastly, we have proudly committed to the Georgia Safety Promise to help visitors travel
