Madison County is a county located in the U.S. state of Kentucky. According to the 2010 census, the population was 82,916. Its county seat is Richmond. The county is named for Virginia James Madison, who later became the fourth President of the United States. This is also where famous pioneer Daniel Boone lived and built Fort Boonesborough, now a state historic site. Madison County is part of the Richmond-Berea micropolitan area.

It is considered a moist county, meaning that although the county prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages (and is thus a dry county), it contains a city where retail alcohol sales are allowed. Nevertheless, two of Richmond's 19 precincts are dry.). Alcohol can also be sold by the drink by the Arlington and The Bull golf clubs. In addition, the Acres of Land Winery is authorized to make and sell wine, and is also allowed to sell beer and wine by the drink at its on-site restaurant.

Madison County is home to Eastern Kentucky University and Bybee Pottery,(closed February 2011) one of the oldest pottery operations in the United States.
