The Chamber Welcomes You
Blessed with a rich and varied history Montgomery County offers visitors and residents alike a true feel of Midwestern life.
Crawfordsville, the county seat, has consistently appeared in rankings of the 100 Best Small Towns in America. Known as "the Athens of Indiana" since the early 1900’s for its culture, progressiveness, and abundance of nationally known writers, Crawfordsville today still embodies many of these same qualities. Two of our most treasured cultural amenities are the Lew Wallace Study, where the famed Civil War general wrote the novel Ben Hur; and Wabash College, an all-male private liberal arts college founded in 1832.
In addition to our cultural heritage, Montgomery County is well positioned geographically, between the metropolitan areas of Lafayette and Indianapolis, to continue enjoying economic prosperity.
Our local economy is quite diverse, ranging from agriculture to large-scale industrial manufacturers. The retail scene offers something for everyone with nationally recognized merchants as well as one-of-a-kind niche retailers. Crawfordsville’s still vibrant downtown business district, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is currently in the midst of a revitalization program, which promises to make our downtown truly unique with many more specialty businesses. The local housing market offers both residents and newcomers an abundance of choices. New apartments, condominiums, and new housing developments as well as older homes in historic neighborhoods provide plenty of housing options.
The citizens of Montgomery County welcome you to one of the best and most diverse communities in America. Jacob Hurt Executive Vice President Crawfordsville/Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce
