Welcome to metro St. Louis’ best kept secret.

Madison is centrally located for the 3,000,000 people and 750,000 businesses in the metropolitan region; the City’s neighborhoods, employment opportunities, regional recreation venues and national sporting events are minutes from downtown St. Louis. Our community is linked to the world market through high speed internet access, as well as by our position on the interstate highway system, Mississippi River and intercontinental rail lines.  Madison is also only minutes from two international airports. 

We provide residents and businesses with exemplary fire and police services, and have received numerous awards concerning these activities.
