Historic Southern Indiana is a region abundant in historical, natural, and recreational resources. Scattered across its hills and valleys are many small towns rich in heritage. This Heritage Area contains numerous sites of historical significance, including Vincennes, Corydon, New Harmony, Madison, and Abraham Lincoln's boyhood home. Forests, caves, rivers, and lakes offer scenic beauty and recreational activities.
Historic Southern Indiana (HSI) is also the name of the organization dedicated to preserving, enhancing, and promoting these resources. As a community outreach program of the University of Southern Indiana, HSI hosts workshops, produces publications, conducts visitor research, and facilitates and coordinates with many groups and agencies with the goal of creating a sense of regional identity and pride. Its office is a part of the University of Southern Indiana Division of Outreach and Engagement.
