Crawfordsville & Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce
Crawfordsville, the county seat has consistently appeared in rankings of the 100 Best Small Towns in America. Known as “the Athens of Indiana” since the early 1900’s for its culture, progressiveness, and abundance of nationally known writers, Crawfordsville today still embodies many of these same qualities. Two of our most treasured cultural amenities are the Lew Wallace Study, where the famed Civil War General wrote the novel Ben-Hur; and Wabash College, an all-male private liberal arts college founded in 1832.
In addition to our cultural heritage, Montgomery County is well positioned geographically, between the metropolitan areas of Lafayette and Indianapolis, to continue enjoying economic prosperity.
