Dubois County offers a unique destination where people can create memories to last a lifetime.

For unique entertainment, ride in style by jumping aboard the “Spirit of Jasper” Train. You can also lighten your day with happy sounds from around the world at Dr. Ted’s Musical Marvels. In addition, connect with nature while enjoying lunch with a Patoka lake cruise.

Historic attractions are in abundance with listings on the National Register of Historic Places. In fact, 20 churches are over 100 years old. See history come back to life at the Dubois County Museum, with over 47,000 sq. ft of exhibits designed to inspire.

Be awed with grand attractions! An example being the Monastery Immaculate Conception, known as the Castle on the Hill. It is home to one of the largest communities of Benedictine women.
