Forty years before the Civil War, the county seat disappeared, leaving behind a legendary pot of gold. Some 10,000 years ago, as millions of tons of glacial ice approached Martin County, it inexplicably halted. When the ice melted, the rushing water carved intricate formations all over the county, including the rare “Jug Rock,” deep valleys, stunning ridges and uncommon ridges.
Some say Martin County represents “the most beautiful land you’ve ever seen.” And there’s more. Breathtaking trails through the Hoosier National & Martin State Forest. Down home festivals. Plenty of outstanding hunting and fishing. Gorgeous sights and geologic formations. All these and more await you in tranquil Martin County.
