    Visit the Historical Society Museum at 401 S Main St, Knox. You'll find a lot of information on the area history, including the smallest man in the world and a 2-headed calf. See the Mastodon tusk that was found in a nearby farm. The house is the home of the former Governor Henry F. Schricker. The first Sunday of July there's always an ice cream social that's open to the community! The hours are Tues - Fri, 12 - 4pm. Or, you can call and schedule a visit. Call 574-772-5548.

    The tracks are gone, but the Depot still welcomes visitors to Knox. The historic depot is located on US 31 at the north edge of town. It's a great way to find out what's around and visit a little of the past.

Knox Restaurants

  • by SCChamber Written Feb 20, 2015

    This restaurant is only open on weekends, Fri - Sun. However, the delicious, authentic Polish and American cooking is worth waiting for. Meals are served buffet style and the variety is plentiful. The dessert bar is to delight the senses. You do not have to be a guest of the resort to enjoy the restaurant, which seems to be a misunderstanding of many. Come and enjoy! They are open from April 1st to Oct. 31.

    Pleasant place on the south side of town. If you're looking for chain service, don't stop here. The food is good, the help friendly, and the atmosphere relaxed. It's a one of a kind place. Come, sit, have a cup of coffee or a piece of pie. It's what life is about, getting to know one another.

    Favorite Dish: The deserts are the best. Three layer Coconut frosting on white cake, yummy. Or try the three layer carrot cake. Homemade flavor. [I didn't say they were made locally], but worth the drive just for the sweets.

    Quaint, relaxing, good food.
