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
Finding an apartment in Madison that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
