Historical Building in Downtown Madison; now an Antique Store!

Historical Building in Downtown Madison

The other day, I visited Madison Station Antiques, a little antique store which is currently housed in the oldest commercial building in Madison, Alabama.

Exterior: Historical Building in Downtown Madison; now an Antique Store!

Madison Station Antiques is housed in the Robert P. Cain building in Downtown Madison.

According to an Al.com article, Robert Parham Cain was the owner of the mercantile back in the 1900s. The building was used for several different businesses until the current owners, Ronnie and Pat Williams, bought the place to sell antiques. Incidentally, they are Mr. Cain’s descendants! They said the place was in a real mess before restoration, but now has a new life as an antiques and collectibles store.

The building is a member of Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage by the Alabama Historical Commission.

Antique Store!

Madison Station Antiques has two stories of antique furniture, linens and quilts, glassware, crockery, buttons, clocks, toys…and anything else you can think of.

They are really nice people, so go visit!

P.s. I wasn’t offered anything to publish this post. I just love antiques, old buildings, and promoting small businesses like my dad and grandpa owned! 🙂

Christmas Shopping Like Crazy

Hi All,

Sorry that I haven’t written in a long while. I’ve been wrapping up my Christmas shopping and getting my Christmas crafts together. It’s a bustling time of the year for moms, such as myself.

It’s also my favorite time of the year. I’m again making a promise to myself to shop the whole year ’round so that I’m not rushing from store to store around Christmas time.

The Huntsville traffic is soooo crazy. It’s usually not so bad to drive from one end of town to the other, but not right now. I’m so thankful that my car and I have avoided any fender-benders so far.

I think that I’ll shop online next year, actually. I’m like a little kid about getting packages in the mail, even if they are gifts for family and friends.

More later!
