Introduction

Looking for small-town living in a rural setting? Primarily a farming and residential area, Drewersburg offers plenty of wide-open spaces to call home.

Summary

Known in tourism circles as the gem of Indiana, Franklin County has attracted a large population fleeing the suburban crowds. Much of the population that moved here in the ‘90s commutes to nearby Cincinnati during the day and retreats to their slice of heaven on their time. Life moves at a slower pace here with time to garden, fish or just relax. Housing styles include country farm homes, newer construction and traditional older homes.

40 miles northwest of Cincinnati, Drewersburg is just 15 minutes off of Interstate 74. Drewersburg is sandwiched between US 52 and St. Rt. 252. Both the Hamilton Airport and Greater Cincinnati International Airport are within a 30-minute drive.

Hospitals

McCullough Hyde Regional Medical Center on St. Rt. 101 provides diagnostic and treatment services. Rush Memorial Hospital in nearby Rushville, Fayette Memorial Hospital in Connersville, Dearborn County Hospital in Lawrenceburg and Margaret Mary Community Hospital in Batesville are the closest community hospitals.

Shopping

Recreation

Outdoor pursuits like hunting and fishing provide opportunities for recreation. Urban farmers have discovered the pleasures of living off the land, with spectacular gardens and small working farms dotting the landscape.
