About Greensburg

Located halfway between Indianapolis and Cincinnati, Greensburg offers small-town charm and Hoosier Hospitality. Hop on an electric scooter and explore downtown, from the historic courthouse and antique stores to the skate park and outdoor murals. Arts and culture thrive in the unique ARTisTREE District, a designated cultural destination home to galleries, community theaters, art programs, international cuisine, and more. Learn about Greensburg’s past at the Historical Society of Decatur County, or make a splash at the Allen Memorial Pool. Enjoy the outdoors with a round of golf at one of Greensburg’s five courses, or go picnicking and paddle boating at Decatur County Park. Spend a day browsing shops and boutiques like Magnolia Mercantile and Picker’s Paradise, then dig into some comfort food at local favorite, Koch’s Carry Out. Greensburg celebrates its community with unique and family-friendly annual events, such as the Tree City Fall Festival, the Tenderloin Throwdown, and the Holiday Walk. During the summer months, the weekly Farmers Market offers an abundance of homegrown and locally-made goods. Greensburg is conveniently located along Interstate 74, and only an hour’s drive from both the Indianapolis International Airport and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Remote workers who move to Greensburg can take advantage of a relocation package including $5,000 to offset moving expenses, a year's membership to the local co-working space and YMCA, gift cards to the seasonal farmers market, tickets throughout the year to productions at the local playhouse, hosted visits to the Lake Santee beach and other amenities (a private lake for boating and beaching), a concierge team to help facilitate your relocation, a "Seat at the Table" - join community leaders at their organizations' tables for annual events such as the Hospital Gala, Chamber Annual Dinner and the Decatur County United Fund Annual Auction, invitations to neighbors’ home-cooked meals, AND... "Grandparents on Demand." Our friend Tami at the Decatur County Community Foundation and her husband (who also drives the school bus) happily offer babysitting hours and will stand in on Grandparents Day at school. Anyone moving with kids knows that there's no price tag to put on this one.
