Once referred to as Lapland, Madison County is predominately an agricultural region in the western part of the state. Covering 456 square miles, 75 percent of which is farmland, Madison residents earn the majority of their income from livestock and dairy industries. Renowned as the most divided county during the Civil War, Madison was inhabited by numerous deserters and outlaws who sought refuge in the rugged topography.
