Madison, IN

Madison, Ia... It is a place of much enterprise and success in business. Large manufacturing operations are carried on here by steam power, among which are iron founderies, cotton factories, a steam-engine factory, flouring mills, oil mills, &c. A great business is done here in slaughtering and packing of hogs, which are driven in large droves from the interior. The advantages for commerce which this place possesses must secure to it, as the resources of the state are more and more developed, a steady increase of prosperity and wealth. (Gazetteer of the United States of America, 1854)
