Morgan County, Indiana is at the center of Indiana, a business-friendly right-to-work state that’s widely recognized as the Crossroads of America.

Our workforce has been steeped in a long tradition of agriculture, manufacturing, and industries in which hard work and a job well done were valued. Local school districts work closely with employers in our county to ensure that the right skills are being delivered and offer Advanced Placement and dual-credit courses to provide an affordable head start for postsecondary learning. Postsecondary providers like Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University prepare adults for success with the skills today’s employers seek, and Indiana is also home to some of the world’s most respected colleges and universities, include Purdue University, Indiana University, the University of Notre Dame, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
And while Morgan County is an excellent place to do business, it’s an even better place to live, offering a laid-back, slower-paced lifestyle in an area with the kind of natural beauty you might not expect from Indiana, communities that share a small-town, family-centered atmosphere, and successful local schools. Plus, our proximity to Indianapolis and Bloomington puts big-city excitement and attractions like professional sports, world-class museums and performing arts, shopping choices, and restaurants just minutes away. Or if you prefer the beauty of the outdoors, you’ll appreciate natural treasures like Brown County and other state parks, and the huge Morgan-Monroe State Forest.
