Welcome, to where the pavement ends…and nature & history begin. Nature and history prevail in Jennings County. The Muscatatuck River meanders lazily past steep stone canyons, beautiful wooded hillsides, and historic towns creating a recreational paradise. Bird watching, fishing, hunting, hiking, rock climbing, and camping are just a few of the outdoor activities. Historic sites, state & national wildlife areas, herb farms, covered bridges, museums, antique & specialty shops, and spectacular festivals are all nestled along our scenic back roads.
Steampunk Art is to be said to be a genre of creative arts that blends yesteryear (particularly Victorian England or the American Wild West) with technology. This type of work uses gadgets and scrap parts that most might see as junk, but artists see as fodder for creative modifications. The Park theater will be selling train tickets starting July 1.
