Southern Indiana describes the three counties across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky and includes the cities of New Albany, Jeffersonville, Clarksville, Floyds Knobs, Georgetown, Greenville, & Corydon. It is an area that is rich in history and tradition, yet full of vitality and growth for the future.
Lewis & Clark met here for the beginning of their expedition to discover the western territories of the United States. New Albany had underground railroads to assist with slaves fleeing to Canada. Jeffersonville is home to the longest continually operated inland shipyard in the U.S. Started by James Howard in 1834, the shipyard is still active as JeffBoat. And Corydon was home to Indiana’s first state capital.
Fast forward to today… Clark County is the fastest growing county in the state of Indiana due in large part to the 6000 acre River Ridge Commerce Center. River Ridge is home to companies like Amazon, Tenneco, & Briova. This growth has spread to all the surrounding areas creating new business and residential developments throughout the entire area.
New Albany & Jeffersonville have revamped their downtown areas to utilize their locations on the Ohio River. Restaurants & entertainment venues continue to attract both residents and visitors to the area. The Big 4 Walking Bridge crosses the Ohio River allowing pedestrians & bicyclist access to downtown Louisville.
