Indiana’s Brown County State Park becomes the state’s largest historic district

NASHVILLE, Ind. — Southern Indiana’s popular Brown County State Park has been added to the National Register of Historic Places, making it the state’s largest historic district.

The park’s recent addition to the National Register is “a great honor” said Patrick Haulter, the interpretive naturalist for the 16,000-acre park, which features rugged hills, ridges and fog-shrouded ravines.

“It really speaks to how important this park is, not only to the people who live here, but to everyone,” he said in a news release from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Brown County State Park opened in 1929 near Nashville, a rustic town that’s the county seat. It’s Indiana’s largest state park and one of its most popular, particularly in the autumn when hordes of visitors converge on the forested park to witness its vivid fall foliage.
