Vintage Fire Museum

As you’re touring the museum, guides may ask you to participate in a bucket brigade, decode fire signals, or even crank the siren. The museum was the private collection of Fred Conway, a fire engine enthusiast who collected, restored, and showed his collection in the lobby of his business, Discount Labels.

Al fresco dining on the patio at The Exchange

Savor a glass of wine from a small, boutique winery or beer from an American craft brewery as you gaze at the Sherman Minton Bridge. The Exchange pub + kitchen capitalized on the bridge’s view at the corner of First Street and Main. The view is another reason to try the gastropub’s appealing menu of locally sourced ingredients.

History graces downtown Jeffersonville’s walls

Ten large photo billboards depicting Jeffersonville’s early days have been posted on buildings throughout the city’s downtown. The photos blend public art with history, something Jeffersonville Main Street is calling “hip and historic. This continues to revitalize downtown Jeffersonville.  This project is made possible by a grant from Indiana Main Street and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

The new DVD, Monumental Memories, is a trip down memory lane and is available for purchase in downtown Jeffersonville shops and at the Southern Indiana Visitor Center.
