Welcome to Carroll County, IN

We invite you to Escape to the Past, explore our rich heritage and see rural beauty in Carroll County. Follow one or all of the scenic tours available in our county or take the Interurban Trolley for that added element of history on your driving tour. Carroll County is located amid the Wabash & Tippecanoe Rivers and Wildcat and Deer Creeks.

The 1845 Adams Mill and nearby fully restored Covered Bridge are near Cutler

Lancaster Bridge, Carroll County's other remaining covered bridge, is also in the southern part of the county near Owasco. 

Indiana's oldest continually used bridge, the 1837 Burnett's Creek Stone Arch—a cut stone structure is near Lockport. Lockport also holds two National Register sites, The Burris House and Potawatomi Spring. The stone building served as an inn while the spring was a well-know watering place for Indians and early settlers. 

History is preserved throughout the county. It offers a view of life in which people are linked together through a common respect for the land and for each other. 

A two-mile watered section of the Wabash & Erie Canal, Canal Park, Canal Conference and Interpretive Center, ten miles of well-groomed walking and biking trails, exceptional architecture, and the County Historical Museum in the beautiful limestone Courthouse are all located in Delphi. 

Pittsburg was home of the "Great Dam" just east of town. This dam allowed navigation of the Wabash River and provided water for the canal and a side-cut to Pittsburg. Vigilantes blew up the dam in 1881. The coming railroad ended the canal's reign.

An old historic bridge is the Freedom Bridge. Originally from Freedom, Indiana, it was in operation from 1897 to 2001. After a long journey, it now spans the Hoosier Heartland Highway (State Road 25) connecting the Monon Trail, just east of Delphi. Here is a time-lapsed video of the installation of the bridge.

Don't miss Sycamore Row near Deer Creek, French Post Park on the Wabash, the towns of Burlington, Camden, Yeoman and Flora. See Carroll County's beauty--past, present, and future!

Find all these treasures on the Carroll County Tour Map.
