Montgomery County, Indiana is rich with history and owns many interesting sites, including the Old Jail Museum (with one of the only workable rotating cells); the Lane Place (home of Henry S. Lane, Senator and personal friend to President Lincoln); Lew Wallace Study (author of the book, Ben Hur); DAR house (owned by the Elston family until the Dorothy Q Chapter, DAR purchased it); and Wabash College (an all-male Liberal Arts School with less than 1,000 students dating back to 1832). Townships include Brown (with towns of Browns Valley and Waveland); Clark (Ladoga); Coal Creek (New Richmond, Wingate and Elmdale); Franklin (Darlington, Shannondale); Madison (Linden and Kirkpatrick); Ripley (Alamo, Yountsville); Scott (Parkersburg, New Market); Sugar Creek (Bowers); Union (Crawfordsville; Whitesville); Walnut (New Ross, Mace); Wayne (Waynetown). Crawfordsville, the County seat, is a third-class city with a full time mayor, a seven-member council and a clerk-treasurer. The city is located just off Interstate 74, about 45 miles West of Indianapolis.

Note: There has been a group of folks who have found (can you believe this?) 385 towns to date (6-24-2014) - click on towns on the left column to read about not only those above but many, many more.Thanks so much to Suzie & Jerry for the majority of them -- It's truly amazing!
