We enjoyed walking through Madison square every day heading to the waterfront. This square also has a statue dominating its center as do the other small parks surrounding it.

This square, named after James Madison, does have a statue situated on it. The centrally-located statue (1888) is very nice and historically interesting. The statue honors the heroism of a Revolutionary War soldier, killed (1779) not too far from the square.
