Community Outreach Programs

Community outreach is an important service offered by the Madison Historical Society.  Society outreach programs are designed to acquaint our younger citizens with Madison's history and why the study of our history can be fun.

Examples include:

  • A classroom program for Second Grade students.  The program includes an introduction to the Society and its history, examples of historical clothing, photos of historical Madison buildings and a history of the Madison's rose industry which gave the town its name, the "Rose City."
                             
  • A program designed to be held at a Cub Scout pack meeting. The introduces the Society to the scouts and explains why it is important for them to know the history of their town.  The group is divided into small groups that attend a sequence of ten minute presentations of photos and artifacts on subjects of historical interest within the town.
     
  • Specialized programs for High School students.  These are usually defined in partnership with the teacher to meet specific educational goals for the class.
