Madison Station

Welcome to FiftyForward Madison Station!

accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers

FiftyForward Madison Station is located in the heart of Madison, Tennessee approximately 11 miles from downtown Nashville. As the initial grant of The Memorial Foundation, Madison Station was designed and opened in response to a documented community need for a senior center. FiftyForward Madison Station opened in 1996 and serves adults 50+ who primarily reside in Madison, East Nashville, Inglewood, Old Hickory and segments of Goodlettsville and Hendersonville.

Named “station” because of its proximity to the historic railroad station behind it, FiftyForward Madison Station is a bustling center with over 150 members attending daily. Among the most popular daily activities are working out in the completely outfitted exercise room or taking one of the other exercise classes including yoga, tai chi, low-impact aerobics and the SilverSneakers® Fitness Program. For those who prefer to exercise by dancing, line dancing and ballroom dancing are offered.

Special interest groups featured are a garden club, a ladies billiards club, a genealogy club, a men’s club, Red Hat club, and two very special musical groups: The Madison Station Silver Notes Band and the Madison Station Golden Tones Choir.

Anyone interested in learning more about FiftyForward Madison Station is invited to call the center at 860-7180 to request a tour. Information about classes and events is also published in our quarterly publication, Forward Focus, available at the center or at area public libraries.
