Pike County Introduction


Friendliness, community and history are plentiful in Pike County. The heart of America is formed by small cities and towns. A number of these dot the wooded hillsides and farm lands of one of the oldest counties in Indiana. The principal municipalities of Pike County are Winslow, Otwell and the county seat of Petersburg. Additional communities fill the landscape with quiet, safe neighborhoods. “Hoosier Hospitality” abounds with the gracious small-town view of local residents. Good schools and strong industry make it even more attractive.


The county is comprised of 338 square acres including 7,000 acres of water and 20 miles of wetlands. It is also the home of a large state forest, wildlife area and a large county park. Small community parks and a nine-hole golf course are a treat for residents and visitors alike.

The Pike County section of the Buffalo Trace has recently been designated as a state scenic byway. Additional historic links include the Wabash & Erie Canal, Lincoln Trail, Underground Railroad and Indian mounds.
