The land was was to become the town of Madison, in Carroll County, New Hampshire, was one of the first to have land grants set aside for veterans of the French and Indian War. In 1852, the settlement that grew up there was incorporated as Madison, named for President James Madison, who was born one hundred years previous. The unincorporated village of Silver Lake is located within south easter part of the town, and has a different zip code than that of the rest of the town. The poet, E.E. Cummings, was living at Joy Farm, a historic farmstead in Silver Lake, at the time of his death. His parents had purchased the farm from Ephraim Joy in 1899, and his mother deeded it to him in 1929, after which he spent summers there. Madison is east of Eaton Center, and south of Conway.
