That’s both a greeting and a statement of pride in what makes Batesville a special place. The German craftsmen who founded our community were attracted by the abundant oak, poplar, and walnut that grow on the beautiful hillsides throughout our part of Southeast Indiana.

They left several wonderful legacies. One is a solid base of manufacturers and other companies that believe craftsmanship and quality are still important. Another is a skilled workforce that shares that devotion to excellence in their daily lives. You’ll see it in our beautiful neighborhoods, in schools that rank among the state’s most successful, in the strong faith of local families, and in a commitment to community and volunteerism that’s hard to find these days.

But that’s only the beginning. Our proximity to Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Louisville puts us minutes from culture, entertainment, worldwide transportation, and thriving commercial centers. Excellent Interstate highway and rail access connect local companies with the nation. You, your business, and your team will feel very welcome in Batesville. We invite you to learn more about our community – and to come and experience our hospitality for yourself!
