Franklin County Profile

Getting to Know Franklin County

Franklin County is a rural gem in Indiana – just 40 minutes from downtown Cincinnati and 90 minutes from downtown Indianapolis.  It offers an impeccable quality of place with a quaint, yet bustling, Main Street in Brookville, as well as the German-inspired architecture of Oldenburg, and a peek into the past in Metamora. The community also boasts unbelievable access to incredible outdoor recreation amenities. 

With a population of over 22,000, Franklin County swells in size on the weekends as it realizes over 1.3 million visitors annually to Brookville Lake – typically ranking it as either the 2nd or 3rd most visited state park in Indiana.  Brookville Lake is a top fishing and boating destination, and the Whitewater River is one of the Midwest’s premier paddling rivers (as well as a hidden treasure for brown and rainbow trout fishing).  Zip Lines, publicly accessible walking trails, antique shopping, and various festivals are all a stone’s throw away from I-74.
