Rogers House

179 E. Jefferson St., Madison, GA 30650​

This home has been at the heart of downtown since nearly the founding of Madison, and lives on today as Madison’s oldest house museum.

 

Built in 1811, the Piedmont Plain home showcases the standard for middle-class houses of the era. Over 200 years later, the house still sits on the original lot it was built on and has never been moved. Despite the location never changing, the house was used for a variety of purposes over the nearly two centuries it was held in private ownership. From 1811-1992 the house passed through 17 different owners and held countless tenants. Those homeowners changed it to fit whatever needs they thought best, from boarding house to antiques store and even a dentist’s office.

Rogers House truly is an ever-evolving part of Madison’s history. Every generation that has passed on ownership of the house has left their mark whilst conserving what came before them. In 1992, Morgan County bought the property in a bid to protect this historic landmark. Today, Rogers House is open to visitors daily for tours, transporting them back in time for a first-hand experience of how Madison’s middle-class has thrived throughout the town’s history.
