Madison County

Madison County is one of the fastest growing counties in Mississippi, yet it has sought to remain a small, friendly community full of rich history and looking forward to a bright future. Named for the fourth president of the United States, James Madison, the 23rd county in Mississippi was created in 1828 from portions of Yazoo and Hinds counties. This area attracted a large number of settlers from Virginia and the Carolinas who came to farm the lush, rolling hills and fertile soil. Today Madison County is home to a number of thriving businesses and has the highest per capita income in the state.

History of Annandale

Whisper Lake is part of the Annandale development in Madison County, Mississippi. The name Annandale has a proud heritage, brought to Mississippi in 1820 by John T. Johnstone of North Carolina, a great-nephew of the Earl of Annandale in Scotland. In the virgin forest of Madison County, he established an extensive Plantation and built a two-room log house, naming both Annandale.

During 1857-1859, John and Margaret Johnstone built a forty room, three-story Italian Renaissance house elaborately furnished which they and their descendants lived in until it burned in 1924.

Throughout the years, the house was the scene of many social gatherings. On clear nights, guests would climb the staircase to the widow’s walk on the roof to stargaze and view the countryside. After 1900, the Plantation was a popular destination for motorists who drove to the grounds for picnics.
