Directions: Madison is located on the Ohio River at the junction of Highways #62 and #64, two hours south of Indianapolis and 25 miles northeast of Louisville. The Lanier Mansion and garden overlook the river at Elm and First Streets.
The Lanier Mansion, a grand Greek Revival style home, was erected for the wealthy frontier banker, J. F. D. Lanier, and given to the State of Indiana by his descendants.
The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Indiana has assisted in the refurbishing of the house, including the restoration of the original six-light gasolier, carpet, upholstered items, and draperies.
In addition, the Indiana Society started and continues to support the archaeological dig at the site.
