Many articles in the 1987 collection of Madison’s Heritage concern people, businesses, and pioneers. Lesser known pioneers including the Girty brothers, Simon Kenton, John Findley, and John Stuart are discussed for their contributions to the county’s early history. Several articles in the 1987 collection deal with sports in the county, covering the Madison-Model Royal Purples, Waco High Cardinals, and Red House teams. “City Once had Mule-Drawn Street Cars” and “Mules Have Place in Madison History” discuss this important animal’s contribution to transportation and agriculture in our county’s past. A couple of articles discuss the historic Blair House in Richmond.
