Where adventrue and serenity come together
Morgan County, Indiana offers a laid-back, slower-paced lifestyle in an area with the kind of natural beauty you might not expect from Indiana. Waterways wind between tree-covered hillsides and stretches of open agricultural land are punctuated with woodlands full of hiking trails and opportunities to hunt, fish, camp, and enjoy the outdoors. Unique local restaurants, brewpubs, farmers markets, and other shopping choices make Morgan County a destination for people throughout central Indiana.
Our communities share a small-town, family-centered atmosphere, where friendly neighbors gather on front porches and in back yards, and where children can safely ride their bikes to play baseball or soccer in nearby parks. Add in successful local schools, minimal crime, outstanding healthcare, and remarkably low housing prices and taxes, and it’s easy to see why people choose to raise their children here.
Something that Morgan County residents never take for granted is our love of trees. Stand just about anywhere and look skyward and you’ll enjoy the beauty of trees and the sound of rustling leaves during a cool summer breeze. In fact, compared to our neighboring counties, we have nearly six times the number of tree acres. It’s no wonder we have tree-lined streets with names like elm, maple, oak, elm, and cedar. Our tree, like our families, enjoy strong roots in Morgan County.
And while there’s plenty in Morgan County to keep you busy, big-city excitement and attractions are just a short drive away. You’re just minutes away from everything the Indianapolis metro area has to offer, including professional sports and racing, world-class museums and performing arts, a full range of shopping choices, and restaurants to suit every palate. Or head south a short way to the cosmopolitan vibe of Bloomington, with its lively nightlife, quirky retailers, and ethnic dining. You’re also close to natural treasures like Brown County and other state parks, the huge Morgan-Monroe State Forest, famous Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis, and many others.
