When you plug into the Health and Heritage Region, you are plugging in to a wealth of amenities that provide occupational and recreational advantages. Whether you are looking for a small city atmosphere, a homegrown hometown feel, or a quiet rural setting, this region has something for everyone. Businesses and entrepreneurs will find a friendly environment to grow and thrive in, ranging from charming downtown spaces to interstate business parks. Home to several concert series and major festivals, including the Riley Festival in Greenfield and Winterfest in Fortville, this region is a great spot to live, work, play, and thrive.
Greenfield holds a spot in the heart of literary history as the birthplace of James Whitcomb Riley. That rich heritage is celebrated throughout the downtown in shop names, art, and trails. Our historic buildings, unique park settings, and plans to increase trail miles and amenities are making Greenfield a great option for homebuyers and businesses.
Fortville’s historic downtown and surrounding neighborhoods create an idyllic setting for festivals and concerts throughout the year. The rich heritage of the community and growing reputation for having top quality dining cements the area as a small town making a big impact on the region.
In Hancock County, you are invited to join us in creating your own story. Whether a first-time entrepreneur or seasoned business operator, there’s a success story waiting to be told in our historic downtown districts and bustling business parks.
