Jackson County is located in South Central Indiana. It is approximately halfway between the metropolitan areas of Indianapolis, Indiana and Louisville, Kentucky. Interstate Highway 65, which connects the two big cities, runs north and south on the eastern boundary of the county. The area also occupies more than one-fourth of Brown County State Park.
The population of Jackson County is 42,400 based on the most recent census. The land size of the county is 514 square miles. Jackson was founded in 1816.
According to historical documents, the county was the site of the first noted train robbery of a moving train in the United States. In addition to having the honor of that historical record, Jackson also has the second longest three-span covered bridge in the world. The Medora Covered Bridge is over 460 feet in length and is located east of Medora in Jackson County. The bridge crosses the East Fork of the White River.
Jackson County is highly regarded for its convenient location in relation to many parts of the Midwest. The residents of Brownstown can reach Indianapolis in a little over an hour. Louisville, Kentucky is slightly less in drive time – about an hour from Brownstown. Jackson is also connected to seven other counties in Indiana. It is also conveniently located in relation to Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio to the east.
Brownstown serves as the county seat in Jackson County. It is very small with a population of less than 3,000 people. Brownstown became a town before the State of Indiana was even officially established. The County Courthouse is located in the small town and is among the buildings in the National Register of Historic Places.
Meanwhile, Seymour is the largest city in Jackson County. It is far bigger than Brownstown with a reported population of 17,500 from the most recent census. It is part of the “Crossroads of America” in Indiana that refers to its outstanding north/south and east/west access to other parts of the country. There are many important railroads that also intersect throughout the downtown.
Though Seymour has grown throughout the years, it still has more of a reputation for being rural. Aisin USA and Rose Acre Farms have headquarters in Seymour. Furthermore, Cummins Diesel operates a plant in the city. Seymour also has one of the largest high school gyms in the state, which also makes it one of the largest in the country.
Seymor sponsors important community events each year like the Pepsi Plunge, Scoop the Loop, VJ Day Parade and Oktoberfest. The area is also home to some important outdoor areas, including the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge and a section of Brown County State Park.
Residents of Brownsville can reach the southeastern border of Brown County State Park in 15 minutes. The largest state park in Indiana features more than 15,700 acres of public land and reports over 1.3 million visitors each year. It is highly regarded for its scenery as well as its abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. Cabins are available for rent and numerous campsites are located in the area.
