Spirit of Jasper Train & Jasper City Mill
The artfully restored, vintage Spirit of Jasper offers the luxury of train travel from days gone by. Enjoy a journey through Southwest Indiana. Each luxurious, climate-controlled passenger car has a story of its own, dating back to the early 1900s. Choose your adventure and make reservations for a Ride and Dine dinner excursion which includes a meal catered by The Schnitzelbank, Jasper's authentic, locally-owned German restaurant, or embark on a scenic trip to French Lick and spend the day at the famed French Lick Springs Hotel, French Lick Casino and West Baden Springs Hotel. Other special trips as well as group and private charters are available. The Jasper City Mill was recently constructed to resemble the former mill that once stood near the Patoka River. This new structure is the latest addition to the "Old Jasper" district. Guests can tour the mill, watch the workings of the waterwheel and corn meal production and browse for souvenir items for purchase in the gift shop. Embrace the serenity of the Patoka River while relaxing at the plaza/rest area.
