Martinsville is like many other small towns. You would most likely drive through it and never think of it again. We have a history that people refuse to let go of even though the town is nothing like it once was. The town is trying to improve itself but struggles as it is in between Bloomington and Indianapolis. The location causes a brain drain as all the youth leaves to go to other areas. There is not much to do in Martinsville, and that is something that needs to change if the town hopes to keep any of its residents. Recently the town has been getting renovated and there are some new restaurants that are actually very good. Improvements like these need to keep coming for the town to improve. The public school systems are just like most public schools in Indiana. The schools have passionate and amazing teachers, but they suffer from massive underfunding and the facilities are below average. Overall, the town is not terrible, but it is not great.... it is average.

Martinsville is exactly what you read on paper, a small farm town with a tight-knit community. Teachers were also coaches, parents, and family friends. There isn't much nightlife but every Friday you can find the whole town supporting local athletics or arts at the schools. It's the place where you walk into the pharmacy and they know your name. You can count on a stranger to help you out of kindness. There is no fear when you run errands alone or at night, it is a sleepy town with hard-working residents and a great school system.
Martiansville is a small town in Indiana, while it is a very small town, it still brings many opportunities that bigger towns could not supply. Due to its small numbers, it is very easy to get antiquated in friend groups, it also has many of its own traditions, like the Morgan County Fair, in which it is heavily weened towards the 4-H community. As a resident of Martiansville, I believe it offers many great experiences.
