The McKay clapboard farmhouse in Madison, MS was called "The Strawberry Patch". During the late 19th century. Dr. H.E. McKay was the Strawberry King in 1870 because he and his brother grew acres of strawberries and shipped them north by rail. (Historic Sites Survey, 9/3/85)
Madison, Mississippi may not be the "Strawberry Patch of the World" anymore, but it still hosts the annual "Fit for Agriculture Half Marathon & 10K Run/Walk." That's about as close as it gets. The city of 24,149 people is really more of a suburb of the Jackson, metropolitan area. Shhh don't tell the proud city fathers and mothers. Founded in 1856, you can see that this town has not grown much over the last fifteen decades, but the residents seem quite content with this snail's-pace growth rate. The city residents make their own entertainment by taking classes at the Madison Square Center for the Arts or walking around The Simmons Arboretum. One of city's unusual features is that it has architectural controls in place, so ordinary structures like the Municipal Court Building, Walgreen's and the Shell Station are visions of grandeur with Corinthian pilasters, Italianate-curved parapets and copper cupolas. We all make our own little kingdoms, don't we? See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Madison renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
