Bartholomew County is well known for its unique architecture. The county hosts a series of tours that take visitors around to some of the most prominent designs. The Chaos I, which is located in downtown Columbus, is one of the most noteworthy. It was designed by Swiss architect, Jean Tinguely. 

The county is also home to Cummins Inc., one of the biggest and most important auto manufacturers in the world. Cummins builds diesel engines and employs thousands of people. Its headquarters are in Columbus, though the Fortune 500 corporation also operates throughout the world with over 600 company-owned or independent distributors. The company reported sales of more than 20 billion for 2017. 

Columbus is the biggest city in the county and by far its most prominent. Along with its distinct architecture as well as serving as the home for Cummins Inc., Columbus has several other attractions. The city has a population of 44,000. It is approximately 40 miles south of Indianapolis and has quietly emerged as one of the most impressive collectors of public art and modern architecture in the Midwest.

The National Geographic Traveler named Columbus 11th on its list of historic destinations you need to visit, citing its “authentic, unique, and unspoiled” landscape. It has also been named one of “The Ten Most Playful Towns” in the United States. The midsize city also offers 700 acres of parks and open land as well as 20 miles of urban trail. Columbus is the home of former NASCAR legend, Tony Stewart, as well as current Vice President, Mike Pence. 

In addition to Columbus, Bartholomew County is also home to various other small towns including Edinburgh (population 4,500), Hope (population 2,100) and Elizabethtown (population 500). 

The architecture tours in Columbus draw people from around the country. The county is also home to the Zaharakos Ice Cream Parlor, which is beloved by locals. Families also like visiting the attached museum as well as the Yellow Trail Museum.

Bartholomew County is also close to some of the more popular open spaces in Indiana. Brown County State Park is located just to the west of the county. Meanwhile, Morgan-Monroe State Forest is located to the northwest and Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge to the southeast. Columbus is nearly halfway between Indianapolis (to the north) and Louisville, Kentucky (to the south).

There is a rich Scottish tradition that is highlighted each year during the Columbus Scottish Festival. The event takes place every September and features entertainment and competitions. The history of the Scottish people is observed through a number of different rituals and ceremonies. The county is also home to the annual Hope Heritage Days.

Bartholomew County may get overlooked due to its proximity to Indianapolis, yet it is a very influential community that has substantial contributions to arts and culture. There is plenty to do in both Columbus and the surrounding region whether you are more into the outdoors or prefer the city life.
