Montgomery House/Botanical Gardens

POSTED: May 29th, 2024

Located across from Madison Methodist Church (100 Post Oak Rd) on Main Street.

What is known as the Montgomery House began as a pioneer dogtrot dwelling in 1852. As the earliest resident T.N. Jones prospered, an impressive façade was added, doubling the size of the house. No major structural changes have been made to this refined country cottage since 1898. Jones became the first president of the Bank of Madison in 1901. The house was inherited by the Montgomery family in 1920. The house, significant as one of the few remaining local examples of Gothic Revival architecture, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
