List View: Here you can click on each stop for an audio or written description and view a selection of historic photos related to each home or building. Then click the “Next Stop” button to move on to the next site or click the location icon if you need to quickly access directions or to find the current stop. When using the map navigation, you may use the back button to return to the tour. Use the “List” button above to return to the tour’s home page with the full list of stops at any time.

Map View: Use the “Map” button above to orient yourself and view all stops on the tour. From the Map page, you may click on each numbered stop to get directions by clicking the address or “Learn More” for audio descriptions and photos of the stop.

Note: If you prefer to follow along on a printed map, be sure to stop in the Welcome Center for a Visitor Guide. You’ll find this walking tour on page 23. Enjoy!


Free parking is available in downtown Madison. There is additional parking available Monday-Saturday at the Madison Methodist and Baptist churches, located two blocks south of downtown Madison.


You are welcome to use your cameras to help document your visit to Madison. However, keep in mind that most of the homes on the walking tour are privately owned and lived in. Please, be considerate of the homeowner’s right to privacy and security. For security purposes, most of the museums request only exterior photographs be taken.
