County was established January 29, 1828, and named for James Madison,
fourth President of the United States. Embraced within the territory
ceded by the Choctaws in 1820, and long known as the "New Purchase," it
was originally a part of the old county of Hinds. In 1823 Hinds
surrendered a large section of its area to form the county of Yazoo, and
five years later, that portion of Yazoo lying east of the Big Black
River, was taken to form the county of Madison. In 1840, the present
boundary line between Madison and Hinds counties was established. The
southeastern border of the county is defined by the old course of the
Pearl River before it was dammed to create the Ross Barnett Reservoir.
In 1837, Madison County had a population of 3,675 whites and 11,238
slaves, and had 89,746 acres under cultivation. As of 2000, Madison
County's population was 74,674, and it is part of the Jackson,
Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county seat is Canton.
Other towns include Flora, Madison and Ridgeland. Madison County is
bordered by Attala County (north),
Leake County (east), Scott
County (southeast), Rankin County (south),
Hinds County (southwest) and
Yazoo County (west).
