When you consider the vibrant array of different types of people, sights, businesses and experiences that you can find in Madison County, it’s hard not to see it as a microcosm of the changing face of Alabama. That makes perfect sense, considering Madison County is acknowledged as “the birthplace of Alabama,” due to its hosting of the state’s Constitutional Convention in 1819.
