The crossroads of the Ohio River and the Historic Michigan Road has been a magnet for creative people for centuries.  Today, in Madison, Indiana, it is where things come together. And for those who appreciate the arts, antiques, the culinary arts, wine making and poetry, it is the perfect destination.  Farmers have been growing grapes and making wine on this great stop on the Indiana Wine Trail, since 1790. Populated with hundreds of creative folk, Madison has half a dozen art galleries, nearly a dozen antique shops with names like Deja Wood, Lumber Mill Antique Mall, Muddy Fork Antiques and the Village Peddler and to top off the cake, something completely unique in America as far as we know, a Stained Glass Walking Tour.  Here you stroll past all of the historic churches in town with beautifully styled, colorful windows.  Exploring the town, you will find fine art, music, theater, traditional trades, creative writing, and photography in addition to traditional art forms, displayed in classically designed, carefully preserved buildings. Historically Creative indeed!
