The City of Crawfordsville, Indiana

Small City... Big Possibilities

Visit Crawfordsville

If you are looking to stay active, increase your historical knowledge, shop unique finds, watch an exciting racing championship, or simply enjoy time with family then Crawfordsville is worth a visit.


What makes our community distinctive is the variety of "play" amenities for residents and visitors. For example, Crawfordsville has more museums than any other community in Indiana. One such museum is the Rotary Jail. Opened in 1882, it was the first jail of its kind in the country that had a round rotating cell. Today, the jail is a museum but is still in working order and the last of its kind.

Crawfordsville is a mecca for recreational enthusiasts--from canoeing in our nationally-recognized Sugar Creek River, ziplining at Indiana Zipline Tours, running/walking/biking the many city trails, to hiking and camping in Shades State Park.

We pride ourselves on the many independent boutiques and dining options available for a community our size. As an antique collector's paradise, visitors plan day trips to shop our numerous antique stores and eat at any number of our lovely cafes.

When it comes to hosting national championships, we know a thing or two. Crawfordsville is home to the Ironman Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships and hosted the Great Lakes Valley Conference for Men's & Women's Diving & Swimming Championships for years.
