The Ripley County Historical Society is well known for its archives, historical information, and museum. Many historical homes and buildings line the Versailles streets, including the Fernando G. Taylor House (where the Ripley County Tourism Bureau office is located) and Tyson United Methodist Church, which are both on the National Register of Historic Places. Signs for Morgan's Raid are located on and near the square to mark the famous raid of 1863, and a driving tour of the raid is available. Recreation takes many forms here; the Southeastern Indiana YMCA is located in nearby Batesville. Versailles State Park, located just outside town off U.S. 50, is the second largest state park in Indiana. Annually the park draws over 400,000 people for camping, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, and more. The park also hosts an annual Bluegrass festival. The historic Busching Bridge near the park entrance was built in 1885. With festivals and farmers markets, as well as old-fashioned pursuits like muzzle loading and turkey calling, there’s a country feel to life here.
