Madison Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
  Location of Madison, Minnesota
Many communities and counties in Minnesota are situated in high traffic tourist areas. In contrast, Madison and Lac qui Parle County are parked right in the middle of rich prairie lands. Madison and Lac qui Parle's location makes it a natural gateway to Minnesota's "Lake Country" and a natural to serve as the "Lac qui Parle County" seat. But Madison and Lac qui Parle County have more to offer than just lake life: several clean uncluttered parks, swimming pool, tennis courts and exquisite golf courses. Goose, duck, pheasant hunting with gun, bow and arrow or camera. "Birding" at Salt Lake. Izaak Walton would keep fishing at nearby Lac qui Parle Lake his secret. The performing arts at the Prairie Arts Center. Wissota Auto Racing. The "Little Minnesota State Fair" - the Lac qui Parle County Fair ! Stinker Days/Fourth of July ! Oktoberfest ! Lou T. Fisk's Santaland ! and that is just a start !!!

History:  

MADISON Township, first settled in 1877, organized in October 1879, was named on the suggestion of Claus P. Moe, "in memory of his former home at Madison, Wisconsin." The city of Madison is located in sections 20, 21, 28, and 29; the townsite company organized by H. A. Larson, general store owner, purchased the land from John Anderson in 1884 and platted the townsite; the post office began as True in 1883, changing its name to Madison in 1884; it had a station of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad. The city was incorporated in 1886, became the county seat in 1889, and adopted its city charter March 12, 1902.
