The area anchored by Lawrence County aka “Limestone Country” supplied the building blocks of these massive structures. Fall is a perfect time to visit the quarries but to also pack, peddle and paddle in this unique Hoosier area also known for its rolling hills and fantastic fall foliage.

  • Go underground and explore America’s longest underground River in Bedford at Bluespring Caverns
  • The winding East Fork of the White River and Salt Creek, Limestone Country is ideal for canoe, kayak and bike rentals for family get-togethers.
  • Travel back in time time at the Pioneer Village, at Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell.
  • “Say Cheers!” at the Salt Creek Brewery in Bedford, a true pioneer as the county’s first and craft brewery.
