Small Town Attractions

The wonderful thing about Greenwood is its close location to not only Indianapolis, but also other smaller central Indiana towns. Residents can experience small town life anytime they want, without leaving the modern convenience of large city living. Greenwood residents truly get the best of both worlds. It seems each small central Indiana town has their own claim to fame, and Greenwood residents can experience all the quirky attractions south of Indianapolis without having to drive too far.

Two of the quirkiest attractions in Indiana lay just miles beyond the city limits of Greenwood. First, Franklin, Indiana is home to the “Grave in the Middle of the Road.” This attraction looks just like it sounds. In the Hoosier town of Franklin, Indiana, the residents know to drive slow on County Road 400 S, that is unless they want to wreck their car on the grave of Nancy Kerlin Barnett. The story told is of Daniel G. Doty who protected his grandmother’s grave in 1912 by guarding it with a gun as the town executed plans to move a cemetery to make way for a new road. All the other graves were moved, by Doty saw to it that his Grandmother Barnett would not be disturbed.

Franklin lays claim to another unique feat. As the home of the World’s Largest Rocking Chair named Big John, this small town has the market cornered on strange. But these unique attractions are a fun draw for Greenwood residents looking to get our of the gridlock traffic.
