Great things come in small packages. Knox may be small but the people you will meet here and the memories you can make are amazing. Everyone is kind and caring towards each other. The area is clean and safe and everyone in the town does their part to make sure of it. I was born and raised here and the connections and friendships that I have made are priceless. The only thing that I would love to see change in the town is a little more industry to be built in order to bring more entertainment and activity around the area. Most of the time there is a commute to around 40 minutes in order to get to a town that has a bigger supermarket or any entertainment. Overall, Knox is a beautiful, clean, family friendly place to live. I would love to see Knox and all the people in it prosper.

There are new stores in town which gives you options on where to shop. The town has a nice park on the river front which has plenty of activities to keep you busy. There are playground equipment, ball fields, walking trails and plenty of spots to fish at. Entering town are nice concrete walls welcoming you. There is a teen center and bowling alley to keep you busy. There is a hospital and clinics for healthcare and emergencies along with the sheriffs office and courthouse. Not far from town is Bass Lake which is a big recreational area.
Knox isn't just an ordinary small town in Indiana, Knox is a family. Everyone, somehow, some way is connected and there is just a humbling vibe radiating throughout the whole town itself. The 3 public schools here in Knox are excellent, the High School of a Gold A Rating for 4 years straight now. The High school also earned it's ISSMA Award for being a Performance School. Whether you plan on living in Knox, or just passing through, it'll be all worth the while.
