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! 🙂
