Welcome to Madison County’s Heritage Walk of Fame

The idea and a portion of funding for the Heritage Walk of Fame come from the Madison County Historical Society.  Sponsors also help to fund this symbol of Madison County’s unique history.  The purpose of the plaques is to memorialize the achievements of deceased persons who have had a significant impact on Madison County’s heritage.  Commemorative bronze plaques are 18” x 21” with inscriptions.  They are embedded in colored concrete and located on the sidewalk around the courthouse.  The number at the top of each plaque corresponds to the same number in this educational brochure (tour guide).  An image and brief information about the person is provided by each number.  A plaque ceremony is held annually on August 22nd.  Sponsorship Honor Roll opportunities are available.
