Fountain County

We invite you to get acquainted with the charm of our small towns as you wander the quiet roads of the county. You will find friendly people and a land richly filled with the adventures and serenity of nature. The tree-covered side roads and quiet waterways will entice you to spend your leisure time outdoors. Hiking, bicycle riding, canoeing or boating down the Wabash River, bird watching, hunting, fishing, or horseback riding; you can do it all here. As you explore, you might not want to leave!

Portland Arch Nature Reserve

The natural beauty of our land draws many visitors as we are home to the Portland Arch Nature Reserve. The natural bridge above this arch is one of only a few in Indiana. The opening was caused by undercutting of the sandstone bluff on both sides, but the sandstone was strong enough that the rock did not collapse, and this arch was formed.

A Splash of Color

Renowned muralist Eugene Savage directed local artists in the painting of the murals around Covington, adding his own contribution of panels. A tradition we uphold today.

Historic DEVON Theatre

Besides our abundant amount of nature and impressive courthouse, we are also home to the Historic DEVON Theatre which opened in 1938. You can also visit the award winning Old 55 Distillery, Wolf’s Fine Handmade Chocolates, or the popular Badlands Off Road Park.
