Fortville is one of the small towns in Central Indiana where families work, play and live a traditional small-town Hoosier-style life. Things are slower than they are in the nearby state capital, Indianapolis, and there isn’t as much to do. But there is, nevertheless, a distinctive flavor to the downtown Fortville sector. As is the case with many small Midwest United States communities, the history of the town can be seen and felt in the evidence of its architecture. Making your way through the Fortville downtown neighborhood, you will come upon sudden treasures such as the historic Livery Stable, pictured above.
Atmospheric downtowns like Fortville’s comprise a kind of living history of Americana that is as priceless as it is nostalgic. Especially the smallish burgs have this to offer, and the people who live in them recognize and cherish the value of their city’s history, representing, as it does, the perseverance of the stalwart forebears who came before them.
