Madison

The Commercial Real Estate Market in Madison is made up mostly of office and village retail spaces. Home Sales are fueled by waterfront properties and a good school system. There are smaller entreprenurial industries in town but no major industrial sectors/

Madison, Connecticut the eastern most town in New Haven County was originally part of Guilford and known as East Guilford for a time. It was incorporated as its own town in 1826. With 18,600 residents living within its 37 square mile borders, Madison's topography is comprised of beaches, lowland marshes as well as higher rocky terrain to the north.

Known as a summer idyll from the start, Madison has recently evolved into a year round community that shines in the summer time with three beaches accessible to town residents and Hammonasset State Park which boasts 2 miles of sandy beach, and board walks, as well as camp sites, gaming fields, and an interactive nature center and trails. Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale started as a post beach clam shack and is now a post Hammonasset must do. The onsite carousel donates its proceeds to charities such as save the sound.

Grocery retailer Stop and Shop and The Madison House assisted living and rehabilitation center are two of the largest employers in town along with the Madison School system. Before Airline deregulation and the hey day of Airline pilot cool, Madison was a haven for pilots who couldn't live any farther than two hours from New York area airports.

Daniel Hand High School has 1210 students and was awarded as a Silver Medal School by US News and World Report. For children growing up in Madison in the 60's and 70's the town's most famous resident was the "Silly Putty King". One half of the duo of inventors who accidentally created Silly Putty lived in North Madison in a gracious mansion atop a hill 5 miles inland from the Long Island Sound but on clear days you could still see the water from his front lawn.

When he died, the estate sold the property and it was developed into residential condominiums. Maybe you can still see the water from somebody's balcony but the lure of silly putty died with its inventor. You can't use silly putty to copy color comics any more either.
