Spencer County is a place built on history, on generations of families calling it home, on the communities that form this very special place in southern Indiana. From the historical sites and festive attractions that make up the northern part of the county, to the mighty Ohio River that flows along the southern part, to all the welcoming towns in between!
In St. Meinrad, Saint Meinrad Archabbey has stood since 1854, providing a unique place for both residents and visitors to work and study. In Lincoln City, Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Lincoln State Park celebrate one of the county’s most famous former residents, Abraham Lincoln. And just five minutes down the road, in the town of Santa Claus, you can feel the holiday spirit all throughout the year at attractions like Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari and Santa Claus Christmas Store.
Towns throughout the county, like Grandview and Chrisney, welcome everyone to their fall festivals and community events. And in Rockport, the county seat, you can enjoy everything from a great glass of wine at Pepper’s Ridge Winery to a step back in time at Lincoln Pioneer Village & Museum to a movie under the stars at Holiday Drive-In.
