LOCATION

Fayette Regional is headquartered in Connersville, Indiana, the county seat of Fayette County, with a combined population of over 20,000.  The area is known for its beautiful landscape, annual festivals and historical heritage. With Indianapolis within 60 miles, it affords the comforts of a larger city while maintaining a small town family environment.

The Whitewater Valley has the advantage of having equal distances from three major metropolitan markets of Indianapolis, Dayton, and Cincinnati. If you are a nature lover, history buff, or a community-centered individual, the Whitewater Valley has all that to offer and more.

QUALITY OF LIFE

Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike will want to explore all that the Whitewater Valley has to offer from farmlands to virgin forests and golf courses to summer/winter concerts. Fayette County features Roberts Park, which offers tennis and basketball courts, picnic and playground facilities, a shooting range, and amphitheater. Manlove Park, Shrader Weaver Nature Preserve, and Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary nature areas offer a peaceful outlet to relax from a long day. Union County has the pleasure of accommodating Whitewater Memorial State Park with its 200-acre lake established in 1949. The park is located one mile south of Liberty, Indiana and features a ¼ mile sandy beach with a swimming area, fishing, boating, 20 cabins, picnicking, horse trails, and handicapped facilities, sightseeing and camping.

Much of the water activities in the area are centered on Brookville Lake and Whitewater Memorial State Park in Franklin and Union Counties. Franklin County is filled with beautiful scenery for more than 2 million sightseers throughout the year. There are hills, valleys, and streams with an abundance of wildlife throughout the entire county. One of the largest lakes in Indiana, Brookville Lake, is a fantastic recreational facility and is stocked with millions of game fish including walleyes, muskie, and bass. The nearby town of Metamora, Indiana is a favorite of tourists and residents for shopping and is noted for its outstanding antiques and crafts. Golfers can enjoy teeing up at several area golf courses around the Whitewater Valley, which include both public and private courses.

Walking through the charming streets of the area towns of Fayette, Union, Franklin, or Rush counties, one thing is common: friendly merchants and neighbors serving neighbors mean the highest quality of goods and services with maximum convenience.

The magic of days past as well as the comforts of modern 21st century conveniences can be found in the homes of the Whitewater Valley. Tree-lined streets and front porch swings where family histories and friendships are made are common occurrences in the communities. The early leaders of the communities left a legacy of fine architecture in the homes they built. Homes dating back to the early 1800’s feature classic Italianate, beautiful Victorian, classic farmhouses, Federal designs, and new construction homes decorate the landscapes and towns of the Whitewater Valley. Featuring over 25,000 households combined in Fayette, Franklin, and Union counties, one is sure to find the ideal house to call a home that meets their chosen lifestyle.

EDUCATION

Education is highly regarded in the Whitewater Valley. Boasting a low student to teacher ratio gives the local schools an advantage that is hard to find in metropolitan city schools. Athletics and extracurricular activities are strongly encouraged along with high academic standards to encourage students to meet their full potential. Area schools also offer great career and guidance programs including the Whitewater Technical Career Center, School-to-Work, Agricultural Careers in Education, teacher cadet opportunities and Peer Helper and Facilitator programs. A college education can also be achieved without leaving the area. Ivy Tech State College and Indiana University East offer a wide variety of educational opportunities from technical training and retraining to academic degree oriented courses.
