Madison-Morgan Cultural Center

434 S Main St
Madison, GA 30650

The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center is a vibrant space celebrating diverse cultural expressions through visual and performing arts, historical exhibitions, and educational initiatives. The MMCC is housed in an iconic Romanesque Revival building originally constructed as one of the South’s first graded schools. Its annual events feature everything from a renowned storytelling festival to live music series, alongside permanent and rotating exhibits, such as “The Andrews Family Legacy: Rooted in the Agriculture and Arts of Morgan County.” This exhibit honors the locally raised yet nationally acclaimed Andrews Family, showcasing their artistic legacy amidst the challenges of growing up Black in a segregated South. Through paintings, drawings, and writings, this exhibition pays tribute to their resilience and provides a peek into the makings of a Civil Rights legend.

Visitors can also explore the Museum of Madison & Morgan County which chronicles the region’s journey from the home of the Native Americans of the pre-Columbian era through its settlement and transformation encompassing agricultural and industrial development up to the early 1900s. A fully restored 1895 Schoolroom Exhibition provides insight into education during that era with original desks, slate blackboards, and period accessories. The exhibit “Columns and Cottages: Madison’s Architectural Treasures” highlights Madison’s distinctive architectural heritage, featuring an extensive array of expertly crafted and preserved styles from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
