FiftyForward Madison Station is located in the heart of Madison, Tennessee approximately 11 miles from downtown Nashville. In response to an initial grant from The Memorial Foundation, Madison Station was designed and opened due to a documented community need for a senior center. FiftyForward Madison Station opened in 1996 and serves adults 50+ who primarily reside in Madison, East Nashville, Inglewood, Old Hickory and segments of Goodlettsville and Hendersonville.
Named “station” because of its proximity to the historic railroad station behind it, FiftyForward Madison Station is a bustling center with more than 150 members attending daily.
