520 1 $a The weekly Madison (FL) Enterprise-Recorder [LCCN: sn95047179] was formed in 1908 through the merger of the Madison (FL) Recorder [LCCN: sn84022777] and the New Enterprise [LCCN: sn95047178], also published in Madison (FL). Columbus B. Smith, the editor of the New Enterprise, remained as the editor of the new newspaper. The New Enterprise had billed itself as the "Official Organ of the [Madison County (FL)] Board of County Commissioners," and the Enterprise-Recorder, to some extent, maintained this purpose. By 1933, the merged newspaper was known as the Madison Enterprise-Recorder ([LCCN: sn95047180], which continues as a weekly through the present (ca. 2008), published by Emerald Kinsley of Greene Publishing, Inc. Columbus B. Smith was a Georgia native, born in 1843. Very little else is known about him at present (ca. 2008). The small city of Madison is located in North Florida, on the Florida/Georgia state line. It was founded on May 2, 1838 on land secured from Madison C. Livingston. Located about fifty miles east of Florida's capital city, Tallahassee, Madison was a political and agricultural center during Florida's early history and remains an agricultural area today. Madison County, established in 1827, was named for James Madison, fourth President of the United States of America. From the 1880s onward, the city of Madison was connected to Tallahassee and markets in other cities in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. But, in 1906, the Augusta Southern Railway connected Augusta, Georgia to Madison, Florida for the purpose of enhancing commerce along a north/south line throughout Georgia. The new line opened new markets to the city and county. Between 1908 and 1933, it was not particularly eventful for Madison, city or county. In 1912, the first movie theater opened. The county was electrified, but electrical service was supplied only at night until 1913, when it would also become available during the day. And, in 1924, the county first began paving its roads.--E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.
