Hear from a Bargersville local!
Here’s what one local had to say on Niche.com:
“I have been all over the world, but I have never found the same feeling of being Bargersville. There is a certain peace and down-home feel mixed in with humble pursuit of excellence.
The Center Grove School district is one of the best in the state and in sports, competes at State Champion level against the largest schools in the state (which are often 2x-4x larger).
The people here seem to really love life and care about the community, unlike most other places I’ve lived. It is more about the collective here than the individual. Snobbiness is not accepted.
The weakest spot is food and entertainment, but there are many new places opening up and the nearby destinations are countless (Bloomington, Nashville Indiana, Indianapolis, Franklin). The steady growth of the area rather than the booming growth other cities seek seems like a wise move that will pay off down the road.”
