With more land in protected nature preserves than any other in Indiana, Putnam County is ideal for bikers, hikers, horseback riders, star gazers, and plant lovers. Forty 19th century covered bridges dot the countryside and dozens of downtown Greencastle restaurants offer unique local food and drink, nestled along tree-lined streets with fun shopping. It’s all walkable to DePauw University, with its Peeler Arts Center and Green Performing Arts Center and wooded campus dating to the 1830s. Music and historic architecture are everywhere. Four historic districts highlight it, and People Pathways walks you through it. Great B&Bs, smart and funny innkeepers, second-story lofts, and family-friendly hotels abound. Put Yourself in Putnam County!
