Attractions

Hartsville attractions:

Hartsville, IN is the typical little country town, with the typical town square.....except this town square has a shelterhouse with a bandstand and new and modern playground equipment!

We have a couple 'claims to fame'. One is the plaque located in the town square, honoring Pvt. Barton W. Mitchell, a Civil War hero, who found the famous 'Lost Orders', the battle plan drawn up by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

In the 1800's, the Hartsville College was located here. The flying Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, attended college here. This too has a marker.

During WW ll, The citizens rallied to the cause. Many of the young men went into service and many others went to work in the factories turning out parts used in the war effort. Their momentos are in the Veteran's Museum at nearby Camp Atterbury, IN.

There are four active churches in Hartsville, and a Volunteer Fire Dept. that holds a Fireman's Festival each year in the town square, with live music on the bandstand.
