Lots of shade, birds, and benches to sit on! Enjoy! Bring a few snacks, a bottle of water, and enjoy!

This square is another beautiful example of all the squares in the Historic district. They are all worth the visit.

We enjoyed walking through Madison square every day heading to the waterfront. This square also has a statue dominating its center as do the other small parks surrounding it.

This square, named after James Madison, does have a statue situated on it. The centrally-located statue (1888) is very nice and historically interesting. The statue honors the heroism of a Revolutionary War soldier, killed (1779) not too far from the square.
