The Northern Towns of Hamilton County, Indiana

If Hamilton County’s four southernmost cities are crown jewels, then its four northernmost towns are hidden gems. Even with big city neighbors, Arcadia, Atlanta, Cicero and Sheridan have held tight to small town charm.

Places to Add to Your Itinerary

Family Fun

In the fall, take the family to Stuckey Farm Market for apple picking, pumpkin patches and apple donuts. If your kids love trains, they’ll marvel at Mr. Muffin’s Trains in Atlanta – a shop filled with model trains that run on Saturdays.

Strawtown Koteewi Park

Find the ultimate outdoor experience at this 750-acre park, featuring three main attractions: Koteewi Stables & Trails, Koteewi Range: Sport & Target Archery Center and Koteewi Aerial Adventure Treetop Trails. Make a day of it by packing a picnic and learning about Native American history at the Taylor Nature Center.

Where to Eat and Drink

Find farm-fresh foods in the northern towns. Take U.S. 31 north to Wilson Farm Market, a local store that sells jams, jellies, bread, produce, sweets and more. Two local favorites are the pretzel bread and Amish fry pies. Bring cash to pick up a pie or a pie-in-a-jar – crust and all, perfect for a picnic.  Dine waterside at Boathouse Kitchen & Swan Dive and watch the sunset over Morse Reservoir in Cicero. You can even walk across the causeway bridge for the best views.


Plan ahead for these fun events in Arcadia, Atlanta, Cicero and Sheridan, Indiana.
