The Historic Depot District – Richmond, Indiana.

I know this is “DestinationPreble” but the truth is a lot of the overnight stay/tourism business that Preble County benefits from is generated by activities in Richmond, Indiana.  Richmond is a lot closer to New Paris than New Paris is to Eaton and the success on one side of the Stateline impacts the other side.

I regularly get asked what is there to do in the area and one way of addressing that is promotional videos.  I’ve created and posted them for the covered bridges, Ft. St. Clair and White Christmas. This one is for the Historic Depot District in Richmond. I hope you like it and fill free to share it or pass it along.
