Founded in 1833, Martinsvillle is located in rich, agricultural Clark County. Nestled along the Old National Road (today Rt 40), Martinsville is primarily a farming community, but we also have small manufacturing plants, among other growing businesses. Located right along I-70, Martinsville gives central access to travel between Indianapolis and St. Louis, making it an ideal location for new businesses.
Community meetings will resume on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm, in the basement of the Community Center.
Our new state-of-the-art high school opened its doors in 2011, and we are proud to have added a new church building for the First Baptist Church to our community in 2011 as well. We are working hard to continue to improve our community and meet our residents' needs!
We look forward to your visit.
Martinsville, it’s small, it’s friendly, it’s home and WE ARE GROWING!
Martinsville Amphitheater Project
Have you heard the news? Martinsville is getting a new addition to the city park. The Lois & Leanore Linn Charitable Foundation is giving the land formerly owned by the Linn sisters to the city of Martinsville to be used as a park. The Foundation has also purchased the Reed property which borders the Linn land to include in the gift. So the Festivals & Events Action Team, which was created during the Martinsville MAPPING process, has chosen as our first project to build an amphitheater on this property.
To raise funds for the structure, the committee has decided to offer commemorative bricks for donations of $100, $200, $300 or more, to be placed in a path that will wind through a botanical garden which will also be developed on the property.
There is an almost endless list of things that can be inscribed on the bricks (subject to the committee’s approval.) Bricks can honor loved ones or special occasions, remember those who have died, acknowledge current businesses or those from the past, be inscribed with historical events, graduating classes, words of wisdom, scripture verses--anything you would like to see included in a memory path. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of Martinsville’s future while remembering some of its past.
