Vermillion 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, bird watching, hunting, fishing, or horseback riding; you can do it all here. As you explore, you might see an eagle, a white-tailed deer, or a pileated woodpecker.

Life on the river

The natural beauty of our land draws many visitors to canoeing or boating on the famed Wabash River. The mighty Wabash is a 503-mile-long natural resource that drains most of the state of Indiana in the United States and it borders the entire 37-mile length of Vermillion County.

Celebrating our culture

Our communities appreciate large gatherings, and our annual events draw visitors from throughout the Midwest. Clinton’s Little Italy Festival, held since 1966, celebrates the food and culture of the ancestral home of many of our residents and is held over the four-day Labor Day weekend. Parke County’s celebrated Covered Bridge Festival is just minutes away and much more!

Honoring Heroes

Your visit to Vermillion County will not be complete without visiting the Ernie Pyle World War II Museum named after the Pulitzer Prize winner. Located in the west-central Indiana town of Dana, the site features Ernie Pyle’s birthplace and a museum highlighting the famous journalist’s life and writings as a correspondent during World War II.
