Who is Madison Yards named for?

Named in honor of Madison Reynolds, a prominent and successful landowner and businessman after whom Reynoldstown is also named. Madison Reynolds operated a store on Wylie Street for many years. He and his wife Sarah originally came to the area from Covington. They had seven kids including a son, Isaiah P. Reynolds. Isaiah graduated from Clark College (now Clark University) and, after inheriting his father’s fortune, continued his father’s legacy in the area. He dealt in real estate, served as an advocate in civil disputes, and erected a two-story brick store which still stands at 912 Wylie Street, at the corner of Wylie and Kenyon Streets.
