Heritage Park Receives Regional and National Acclaim!

Thanks to the Washington County Community Foundation donors, Regional Opportunities Initiative, IU ServeDesign Center and Hoosier Uplands, construction of Heritage Park was recently completed.

This journey, just a little over two years in the making, has had its challenges, most notably dealing with a global pandemic.  However, leaders of the project persevered and the park is complete. 

The park boasts a large mural featuring six significant women in the history of Washington County.  Spanning two centuries, these women’s stories inspire and educate us all in the power of perseverance. 

Heritage Park has garnered regional and national attention.  Here are a few articles that may interest you:
