Did you know that our midtown direct Madison was once called Bottle Hill?  Two schools of thought exist to explain the name.  One refers to the actual original land grant, a “bottle” lot, and the other references the “bottle” sign of a historic tavern. Either way, the official town name was changed in 1834 to honor former president and Constitution framer, James Madison.  Every year people who live in Madison and nearby towns gather to celebrate Bottle Hill Day.  20,000 people are expected to leave their midtown direct homes to join in the excitement of Bottle Hill Day this year.  The event, complete with a first-ever beer garden, will be held on October 1st from 12 to 5 p.m.

Events include live, local entertainment, rock climbing opportunities with Blue Ridge Mountain Sports, fireworks and a bonfire, as well as family activities including a classic auto show.  This annual festival is held rain or shine and is a favorite of those who live in Madison and surrounding midtown direct communities.  For more information or to find out how you can volunteer to be part of the fun, please click here.
