Overview

Indiana's Ohio River Scenic Byway (Images of America Series) by Leslie Townsend


The Ohio River Scenic Byway, designated a national scenic byway in 1996, travels through quaint river towns, thriving cities, and beautiful countryside on its 302-mile journey through southern Indiana. Indiana’s history and early settlement began along the Ohio River and includes prehistoric Native American sites, 400-million-year-old Devonian fossil beds, the site where Lewis and Clark first met on the Corps of Discovery voyage, and Indiana’s first state capitol. Communities along the Ohio River Scenic Byway include Lawrenceburg, Aurora, Rising Sun, Vevay, Madison, Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany, Corydon, Leavenworth, Cannelton, Tell City, Troy, Rockport, Newburgh, Evansville, and Mount Vernon. The byway celebrates the scenic, recreational, and historic in its architecture, winding roads, and overlooks.
