Welcome to Madison County

The farms and open land in this area are pleasantly bucolic, and the towns postcard-perfect. St Charles is home to the oldest of the six surviving covered bridges, while tourism-hub Winterset has the rest, as well as a gorgeous silver-domed courthouse.

In between the two you'll find a few vineyards, breweries and cideries. Pick up a county map (or download one) from the Winterset Chamber of Commerce.
