Vanderbugh County is one of the largest counties in Indiana and one of the best. As a member of 4-H, we have the best fair in Indiana and have won the Indiana State Fair Queen Contest two years in a row, this is competing out of 83 other counties. We are a fun loving, country rocking, corn growing county. I wouldn't change anything about this county, but having more people live here.
It's very homey. It's not too small where you know everyone and not too big like New York. Vanderburgh does okay with taking the residents views in consideration.
