Located a couple of hours drive from the major urban areas of the mid-west, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville, Martin County offers the inherent natural beauty of areas far more well known.
The East Fork of the White River as in winds for miles into and out of Shoals on down to Hindostan Falls reminds one of the Wisconsin Dells. The scenic overlooks and natural rock formations on West River Road and many other places throughout the unglaciated areas of the county remind us of the hills and valleys of Appalachia. The Jug rock formation would be more at home in the canyons of Southern Utah, yet here it is right here in Shoals on Highway 50.
Lakes, rivers and beauty unsurpassed are closer than one could imagine.
The American history is as old as the Northwest Territory whose path was forged by horses, stagecoaches, fur traders and eventually the settlers who came as our nation grew west to Vincennes, the further most outpost of the day. Landmarks still exist to commemorate that passage.
