Travel Tips for Rockville

Where to Find the Amish

by JanaBanana

As you travel around Parke County, you'll see horses and buggies occasionally traveling thre roads. More curious about their way of life? Well, you can either try and stalk the buggy, OR you can listen to my tips!

On Saturdays, go east on Hwy 36 out of Rockville. Drive a while, and on your right you'll see a little stand set up. You'll find Amish people selling food, deserts, drinks, crafts, quilts, and various other Amish things.

OR

During the week or weekends, go North on 41 to a place called Coblers Knob (or maybe it's Goblers Knob... anyway...) they sell Amish food and other stuff, plus they sell other country things. AND they have the best ice cream, including my personal favorite flavor, Blue Hawaiian!

If you're interested in woodworking, you can drive North on Hwy 41 and follow the signs to Bloomingdale. Then ask around for John Lapp, who I've heard does excellent woodworking.

I've heard that if you go to G&M Variety on the square you can order root beer homemade by the Amish, but watch out... it's not called root BEER for nothing! (They do ferment it, but barely.)

Also explore the back roads all around the county, since the Amish are spread out all over the county.

Covered Bridges of Fountain County

by Toughluck

The concentration of covered bridges spills over into the neighboring counties. Fountain County to the north has a few that may be of interest. Both are closed to traffic, but accessible from public parks.

Cades Mill covered bridge is an 1854 Howe Truss

Wallace covered bridge is an 1871 Howe Truss.

Crawfordsville and Ben Hur

by Toughluck

If you remember the movie with Charlton Heston as an epic story, you might be interested in the man who wrote it and his rather unique personal story. It's all located up the road in Crawfordsville. Here Gen. Lew Wallace began his writing of 'Ben Hur'.

Welcome to Rockville

by JanaBanana

Capital of the Covered Bridge Capital of the World!

When I think of Rockville, I think of sweet times with good friends, of climbing the tree at the park with a good friend, of walking to the cemetery with a friend because it's a quiet place to talk, of sneaking out at night on snow days, and trying not to get caught.

Rockville is a small quiet town, a peaceful place where people know each other and love to know all about visitors. It's also the county seat of Parke County, the "Covered Bridge Capital of the World." On this page, I'll tell you more about the county, it's bridges, and of course Rockville itself! The best places to go, and the places to avoid.
