Nestled in the southwest corner of Indiana, Owensville offers a lifestyle of a unique balance and blend of rural, suburban, and industrial life. As our famous Watermelon Fest proves year after year, you can't find friendlier people anywhere else.
Love nature? The Wabash River, fabled in song, is a stone's throw away. We enjoy a four season climate. Hoosiers joke that "Every season has three seasons in one. If you don't like today's weather, wait a day. It'll change. "The Fall foliage is breathtaking. Winter offers just enough snow so that children are well versed in the construction of snowmen (and that Hoosier love for baseball and basketball means strong accurate arms for snowballs). Spring brings the farmers and gardeners out to tend that amazing Indiana soil. Summers are just right for swimming, water skiing, and all the other summer sports.
Agriculture is a respected and important aspect of our community. The work ethic that made America great is evidenced in our local farmers - working hard to feed our great nation.
Industry is no stranger - The Gibson Generating Station and Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Indiana's plant are world class producers of energy and vehicles.
Owensville - where we still live the American Dream!
