Jug Rock Nature Preserve
Jug Rock is a natural geological formation located outside of Shoals, Indiana, in the valley of the East Fork of the White River. It’s composed of sandstone, and is the largest free-standing table rock formation in the United States east of the Mississippi River.
Located east of Bloomfield and west of Solsberry near the community of Tulip, the 2,307 feet long and 157 feet tall steel-girded railroad trestle is one the longest of this type of bridge in the world still in use today by the Indiana Railroad Company. Built in 1906 and stretching from hill to hill across the beautiful Richland Creek Valley, the 2,700 pound steel frame consists of seventeen 75-ft. deck-plate girder spans alternating with eighteen 40-ft. girder tower spans, as well as two 50-ft. spans at the west end and two 60-ft. and two 45-ft. spans at the east.
West Baden Springs Hotel
The spectacular six-story dome — once dubbed "the eighth wonder of the world" — is a grand welcome to the West Baden Springs Hotel in beautiful southern Indiana. This National Historic Landmark hotel calls on a century of tradition to blend its cutting-edge design with impeccable service, contemporary amenities, and a cosmopolitan feel.
