Fortville, Indiana

Laid out and planned in 1849, the historic town of Fortville was incorporated in 1865. Located in Vernon Township, Hancock County, Indiana, Fortville was named after its original town owner, Cephas Fort. Today, the quaint town has a charming community in a Midwestern setting that embraces its history. For instance, built in 1914, The Browne-Rafert house on Merrill Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just over 20 miles northeast of downtown Indianapolis, Fortville is considered part of the Indianapolis Metropolitan area. Though small, Fortville has actively begun developing several projects that have helped to revitalize the town. However, those who come to Fortville can still experience the small town atmosphere reminiscent of a simpler time. 

Fortville provides access to plenty of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. Within the town are 2 parks, Memorial Park, and Landmark Park. Both offer unique experiences and are worth visiting. For instance, Memorial Park is a perfect place to bring the family together; several playgrounds, baseball fields, basketball courts, and a skate park will be fun for all ages. Even the dog will appreciate it as Fortville Dog Park is located right inside of Memorial Park. Landmark Park offers a more relaxing environment with a small playground, a football field, and a gazebo. Whatever it is you enjoy, both of Fortville’s parks can provide a memorable experience. Also worth visiting is the nearby Flat Fork Creek Park in Fishers, Indiana.



Fortville enjoys a calm and peaceful environment just outside of bustling cities. The Midwestern setting and the countryside views provide a more rural community though it has a mix of suburban lifestyle as well. Those who come to the quaint town will find that the community of Fortsville is both tight-knit and caring.
