Early last century Madison’s “movers and shakers” decided factories should be located on the east side of town. Soon eight factories were built along the rail corridor between Baldwin Street and Olbrich Gardens.

Using maps and photos from his tour book on historic Madison industries, Burr Angle will share info on the men and factories that grew up along the East Madison rail corridor/bike path. Bring your industrial memorabilia to share!
