Venue: Madison-Morgan Cultural Center

The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center is a non-profit,


multidisciplinary performing and visual arts facility. The Center occupies an elegantly restored 1895 Romanesque Revival Building and is located in the heart of Madison, Georgia’s National Register Historic District. As one of the first graded public schools in the Southeast, it operated as a school until 1957. Following an extensive renovation, the building reopened in 1976 as the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center. Since that time, the Center has been recognized for its restoration and adaptive reuse of the award-winning structure as well as its reputation for excellence in arts and humanities programming. The original school bell still rings for many visitors who enjoy the Center’s programs.
