Travel Tips for Evansville

Evansville

by sambarnett

   It's not uncommon for a community of measurable size to have an endangered structure or two but an entire downtown area? Sadly, this is the current state of this Ohio River city of 121,000 people. Just how empty is the downtown? Over 40% of the buildings, many of them in good shape and some worthy of landmark status, are empty. And that's just on the street level. According to the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana, upper floor occupancy rates are even lower.

   Unaware of this, some friends and I walked around the area while in town for a wedding. Storefronts that actually had occupants weren't even open and the only people out and about were some shiftless, weasely looking characters. See my "favorite memory" under General Tips for an explanation.

   All that said, there are a few interesting sites nearby. A few miles east, the Angel Mounds State Historic Site has beautiful grounds and an interesting visitors center detailing the people who lived here around 900 AD. North of downtown is Bosse Field home of the Evansville Otters, shooting site for the hit 1992 movie A League of Their Own. Constructed in 1915, it is the third oldest ballpark in the world, and it's really beautiful, especially the entrance gate. Unfortunately I loaded my film improperly when in town and have very little to show here.
