The doors of the home are original to the home. It was built in 1932, during the era of the Great Depression. While in office, President Franklin Roosevelt initiated a “New Deal,” which resulted in the federal government buying 15,000 acres on the shores of Cherry Lake and made plans for a community to house families resettled from crowded urban areas. The idea was to develop the land into a farm and industrial plant that would sustain the inhabitants and jumpstart economic activity. This home was one of the cottages built as a part of the economic efforts. If you’re ready to retire and enjoy the simple country way of living, or you’re that newly-wed couple ready to start a family, this home is waiting for you! Madison, Florida is centrally located between Valdosta, Georgia and Lake City, Florida, and a short drive from Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Florida.
