Madisonville, Texas – The Madison County Seat

Madisonville, Texas is a bustling rural city and county seat at the intersection of Interstate 45 and State Highway 21. The community both past and present has uniquely benefited its residents and the state at large through its strongly agricultural way of life and business, with an estimated 244,524 acres of Madison County devoted to farm and ranch activities in 2002. With its prime location 1 1/2 hours from Houston, 2 hours from Dallas, and 45 minutes from Bryan/College Station (home of Texas A&M University), visitors and residents find that Madisonville is a pleasantly rural locale from which to access the arts, culture, education, and commerce of the nearby big cities- and those very things are growing within the community itself!

With historic roots deeply grounded in the good Texas earth, you will find Madisonville friendly, active, and growing.
