For those who love history and “Farmer’s Markets”, Saturday, April 7th, will allow you to enjoy both.
From 9am until 1pm the historic Madison Hall in Morrisville, will host its last indoor Farmer’s Market for the year. The setting for the event is the attractive Greek revival structure now known as Madison Hall but once the Madison County Courthouse.
This courthouse building was erected in 1865 to replace the one that many people believe was burned by the infamous Loomis Gang. The fire of October 11, 1864, started on the second floor galleries it is speculated was the Loomis Family trying to burn the documents and court papers in the case against them. Legend has it that the village’s fire hoses were cut by a member of the gang.
This beautiful mid–eighteen hundred building is set on the former building’s foundation, and is entered on the original stone steps of the old courthouse. The building became a part of Morrisville College after the Madison County Seat was moved to Wampsville, where it is located today
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, today Madison Hall is used for public functions and in the winter season as the site of an indoor farmer’s market.
So for a wonderful selection of goods and food come to Morrisville on Scenic Route 20 and enjoy the historic setting and the fun.
