BENTON CO. COMMUNITIES

Benton County is made up of 6 Incorporated Towns and several Unincorporated Places. Benton County's incorporated towns remain vibrant community centers bustling with restaurants, shops, industry, and schools. Each achieves its own unique and charming mixture of past and present. Fowler's impressively restored courthouse is the massive hub around which this busy town spins. Oxford's brick streets and town square are a nicely preserved reminder of a more peaceful era. Otterbein is growing to serve Lafayette commuters. Boswell is a prairie village that modestly considers itself the "Hub of the Universe." Little Earl Park makes up for its size with can-do attitude and a huge fall festival. Ambia residents are proud of their town park.

Unlike many small towns that have been drained of their businesses, local leaders have made reinvestment in their hometowns a priority. Fellure Foods recently added Subway to their grocery store in Otterbein. Boswell's Farmers & Merchants Bank continues to expand its reach. Fowler's 100 Mile House is a famous stop on the road from Indianapolis to Chicago.

INDIANA'S FIRST WIND FARMS

As home to Indiana's First Wind Farm, Benton County has certainly been the topic of many discussions across the State and perhaps the Nation and the World. One of the most frequently asked questions is "Can we come see the Wind Turbines?" and the answer is most definitely "Yes!" We are just tickled to welcome visitors to our County to see the Wind Turbines that have been making the news all over.
