Make Seymour Home
Welcome to Seymour!
As Mayor, it is a privilege to welcome you to the city of Seymour, “the crossroads of southern Indiana, where all roads lead home.” As you explore our beautiful community, I believe you will find Seymour to be the best kept secret of southern Indiana.
Take time to stop and walk through any of Seymour’s seven beautiful parks where children, adults and families are engaged in a wide variety of outdoor activities. Check out the beautiful golf courses, community swimming pool, and playgrounds. From biking to organized sports to family reunions, our parks provide safe, clean, friendly havens from today’s hectic pace of life. And our proximity to hiking, canoeing, or watching wildlife in the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge speaks to nature lovers who desire easy access to world class recreational facilities.
Seymour is a vibrant community that engages its youth. Whether it’s as members of the Boys and Girls Club, Girls Inc., or community sports leagues you will see a commitment to youth that is unparalleled in other communities.
Home to some of the highest rated schools in southern Indiana, Seymour citizens believe education enriches all lives. The City and Seymour Community Schools are proud to work together and recently opened a newly-constructed education facility that will allow both adults and high school students to earn college credits offered by some of Indiana’s top universities. The Jackson County Library, located in Seymour, hosts pro- grams for all ages and interests. And don’t forget the arts. Seymour is home to the unique Southern Indiana Center for the Arts which caters to the artist in us all.
Located in the heart of South Central Indiana, Seymour residents have easy access to entertainment, major league sports, national touring companies, music of all types and shopping associated with large cities such as Indianapolis, Louisville and Cincinnati, while offering choice homes on tree-lined boulevards, beautiful townhouses, or expansive houses with large acreage. Our city services are second to none. As a city on the move, Seymour’s innovative free curbside recycling is being emulated throughout Indiana. As mayor, I am proud that Seymour has received many state achievement awards for pro- gressive and technological advancements in recycling.
You may not have been born in John Mellencamp’s “Small Town” but you will always be welcomed to live amongst our notable doctors, inventors, rock stars, and even Miss America, all who proudly claim Seymour, Indiana as their home.
Again, WELCOME TO SEYMOUR! We are delighted you have found Indiana’s best kept secret.
Craig Luedeman Mayor, City of Seymour
