Madison NJ Homes for Sale

Madison NJ Homes for SaleNamed after President James Madison, the charming Borough of Madison, is a vibrant commuter suburb with low rolling hills and a quaint downtown. When the Madison train station was established in 1837, it brought millionaires to the area looking for land to build estates for weekend getaways and vacation use.

Many of these land developers chose Madison. “Millionaire’s Row,” which stretches from downtown Madison to downtown Morristown was formed as a result. The train line also gave way to a flourishing rose-growing industry, which gave Madison its nickname as “The Rose City.” Millions of cut roses were sent by train to New York’s flower trade annually. The nickname remains in use until this day and can be seen in the town’s logo and street names such as “Rose Avenue” and “Greenhouse Lane.”
