MADISON CELEBRATES 100 YEARS IN CURRENT COURT HOUSE
On Sunday, November 16, 2014 citizens of Madison County gathered in the courtroom at the century old Madison County Court House. The 2:30 PM Centennial Celebration was a reminder of days gone by and how society and culture have changed but the center of law and justice remains symbolized by a structure that was dedicated in 1914. Two previous court houses had burned but many of the records dating back to early Florida were saved. The keynote speaker was Edwin B. Browning, Jr., Judge, First District Court of Appeal--retired. He shared many stories of practicing law in Madison that included many, many visits to the court house where justice is centered in the community. Many thanks go to Tennie Cave and The Treasures of Madison County and all those who assisted in making this celebration a very special event.
Oliver Bradley, Veterans Service Officer; Teenie Cave, President of The Treasures of Madison County; Baily Browning, Madison County Judge; Edwin B. Browning, Jr., Judge, First District Court of Appeal--Retired; Tim Sanders, Madison County Clerk of the Court.
