Madison County is located in the southeastern part of the state of Idaho. It was originally founded as a part of the Idaho Territory in January 1873, and then later established as a county in the state of Idaho on February 18, 1913. Prior to the territory's creation, the area was home to different Native American tribes, like the Shoshone and Bannock. European settlement in the region began in the mid-19th century, primarily driven by the fur trade and the expansion of the railroad.

The county was named in honor of James Madison, the fourth President of the United States, who served from 1809 to 1817. The county seat is located in the city of Rexburg, which was founded in 1883 by Thomas Edwin Ricks, a prominent local leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The development of the area was closely tied to the expansion of the Oregon Short Line Railroad, which connected it with other major settlements in the region.

In the early 20th century, agriculture became the dominant industry in Madison County, particularly with the cultivation of potatoes and barley, as well as dairy farming. The county's farmland is traversed by the Snake River Plain, which is characterized by rich, fertile soil.

A fun fact about Madison County: it was home to the first nuclear disaster in the United States. In 1961, the SL-1 nuclear reactor, located in the county, experienced a criticality incident, which resulted in the deaths of three military personnel. The incident led to significant changes in reactor safety design and government oversight of nuclear power generation.
