About the region

A historic city with a French twist

Vincennes, Indiana’s oldest settlement, used to be the capital of the Indiana Territory. Although Vincennes has transformed over time, the French influence and farming culture is something locals are still proud of. Steps away from SCHOTT you will find The Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy. George Rogers Clark Historic National Park, a grand rotunda that houses a life-life, seven-foot-tall bronze statue of George Rogers Clark, sits along the lower Wabash River. Knox County Watermelon Festival pays sweet tribute to truly the best tasting watermelon you will ever eat.
