Amerinds occupied the areas that would become New Jersey and Madison following the retreat of the Wisconsin Glacier for many thousands of years. Settlements of the Lenape Indians were agriculturally-based following matrilineal lines. Occupation changed with the seasons, the variable nature of the climate, and to preserve the fertility of the rich soil. Their fishing and hunting territories were wide-ranging and similarly divided among the three clans of the matrilineal culture in this Eastern Woodland environment. Trade with these native peoples for food and furs was conducted by the Dutch during the period of colonization of New Netherlands. Although the European principle of land ownership was not recognized by the Lenape, Dutch West India Company policy required their colonists to purchase land that they settled, but typically, trading relationships were established in this area, rather than Dutch settlements.
During the British colonial period, the earliest settlers of European descent arrived in this portion of the colony of New Jersey. Traditional native trails and pathways were followed as settlement began. Pressures upon the Lenape constantly drove them westward. About 1715 the village of Bottle Hill was established at the crossing of Ridgedale Avenue and Kings Road. Village governance principles followed the British model. The Luke Miller house at 105 Ridgedale Avenue is thought to be the oldest remaining home, having been built around 1730. Kings Road had been just that, during British colonial times it was a toll road whose fees were levied by the government appointed by the English king. Farther south was the Shunpike, a road with a parallel path that was used deliberately by colonists to avoid the fees.
Morris County, created in 1739, was divided into three townships. The portion of the village north of Kings Road was put under the governance of Hanover Township and the portion to the south, under the governance of Morris Township. A meeting house for the Presbyterian Church of South Hanover, as Madison was called at that time, was started in 1747 where the Presbyterian Cemetery still exists between Kings Road and Madison Avenue. With the Treaty of Easton in 1758, the Lenape were required to vacate their lands in colonial New Jersey and to move westward. Later, their leaders allied with the colonists during the American Revolution in hopes of regaining former lands, but that was never realized.
Following the revolution, changes to governing methods in the former colonies occurred eventually as the new nation organized herself. The state of New Jersey formed its government and debated best policies. During the reorganization of Morris County in 1806, Chatham Township was formed as the governmental entity to include three existing pre-revolutionary villages (the current municipalities of Chatham, Florham Park, and Madison) as well as all of the lands still governed by the current Chatham Township, and thus the governmental division of Bottle Hill was ended and it was reunited as far as governance was concerned.
In 1834, the name of the village was changed to Madison. On December 27, 1889, based on the results of a referendum passed on December 24, 1889, the village seceded from Chatham Township and adopted the newly created, borough form of government (when it first became available), in order to develop a local water supply system for its population of 3,250. Madison annexed additional portions of Chatham Township in 1891, and again each year from 1894–1898, which was followed by an exchange of certain lands in 1899 with Chatham Township.
Influence of early railroad Edit
Madison's growth accelerated after the Civil War A railroad provided good transportation for farm produce grown at Madison. Later, the railroad made possible the establishment of a flourishing rose growing industry, still commemorated in Madison's nickname, The Rose City. The rail service connected the commerce to the markets of Manhattan. The Morris and Essex Lines became one of America's first commuter railroads, attracting well-to-do families from Manhattan (many of whom already owned large parcels land in the area for farming, hunting, and recreation) and contributing to the development of "Millionaire's Row," which stretched from downtown Madison to downtown Morristown. Greenhouses dotted the countryside. Talented horticulturalists were attracted to the area for employment at the many wealthy estates in the immediate area and to establish related businesses. One of the first grand houses to be built on "Millionaire's Row" was the Ross Estate.
The historic railroad station was donated to the community by the Dodges. The tracks were elevated through the downtown and no established roadways were hindered by crossing delays. The station included baggage and cargo facilities readily accessible by wagons as well as the stationmaster offices, a newsstand, and waiting facilities featuring extensive banks of high-backed wooden seating. Weeping Mulberry trees were planted among the landscaping and in natural areas in the parking area.
The rose industry and the large estates in the area attracted working class people of all kinds. As a result, Madison developed a diverse population very early, both in terms of socioeconomic status and ethnic background. The original settlers were of British stock; French settlers came after the American Revolution; African Americans have been members of the community from early in the nineteenth century; Irish came in the mid-nineteenth century; and then Germans and Italians arrived around the turn of the twentieth century. To this day there is a substantial population of Italian descent in Madison. Today Madison also remains a diverse community, with many of the more recent newcomers arriving from Central America, South America, and Asia.
Madison is governed under the borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The government consists of a mayor and a borough Council, comprising six members, with all positions elected at large. A mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The borough council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year.
As of 2012, the mayor of Madison is Robert H. Conley (term ends December 31, 2015). Members of the borough council are President Jeannie Tsukamoto (2014), Vincent A. Esposito (2012), Donald R. Links (2012), Robert G. Catalanello (2013), Robert Landrigan (2014) and Carmela Vitale (2014).
Federal, state and county representationEdit
New Jersey's Eleventh Congressional District is represented by Rodney Frelinghuysen (R, Harding Township). New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Frank Lautenberg (D, Cliffside Park) and Bob Menendez (D, Hoboken).
Morris County is governed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders, who are elected at-large to three-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with two or three seats coming up for election each year. As of 2011, Morris County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director William J. Chegwidden (Wharton), Deputy Freeholder Director Douglas R. Cabana (Boonton Township), Gene F. Feyl (Denville), Ann F. Grassi (Parsippany-Troy Hills), Thomas J. Mastrangelo (Montville), John J. Murphy (Morris Township) and Margaret Nordstrom (Washington Township).
The Madison Public Schools serve students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Schools in the district (with 2009-10 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics) consist of three elementary schools — Central Avenue School (K-5, 487 students), Kings Road School  (K-5, 243 students) and Torey J. Sabatini School  (K-5, 262 students) — Madison Junior School  (6,7,and 8, 531 students) and Madison High School (grades 9-12, 752 students).
Saint Vincent Martyr School (SVMS) is a Catholic parochial school that serves students in grades PK-3 through seven, operated under the auspices of the Saint Vincent Parish and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson. SVMS is a recipient of the No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon award for 2005-2006.
In 1867, Drew University was founded and continues to operate in Madison, on a wooded campus near downtown that previously was a private residence.
A portion of Fairleigh Dickinson University's College at Florham is located in Madison on the former Vanderbilt estate.
Madison's downtown is supported by the Madison Downtown Development Commission and a downtown manager. Many historical buildings remain in the community. The Madison Civic Commercial Historic District, which includes much of "downtown" as well as the borough hall and the train station, is listed on the State Register of Historic Places. The borough hall and the train station were donated to the community by Geraldine R. Dodge and Marcellus Hartley Dodge, Sr. as a memorial to their son who died in an automobile crash shortly after his graduation from Princeton University. Vacant commercial space is a rarity. In recent years Madison has become noted for the number and quality of its restaurants.
Giralda Farms, a planned office development, occupies 175 acres (0.708 km2) of the former Geraldine R. Dodge estate in Madison (she and her husband had separate estates). Five of a possible seven projects have been completed. These include the corporate headquarters of the Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company, Maersk Lines, Quest Diagnostics, Wyeth, and the offices of Schering-Plough. Development regulations for the former estate require that 85% of the land be maintained as open space with almost all vehicle parking being required to be built underground.
