Posey County Resources

Welcome to posey county!


Posey is the southwesternmost and westernmost county in the state of Indiana. Our western border is formed by the Wabash River and our southern border is formed by the Ohio River. We are home to Harmonie State Park, Historic New Harmony, Hovey Lake, and the Ports of Indiana-Mt. Vernon is the seventh largest inland port complex in the nation. Enjoy all that Posey County has to offer on a quiet afternoon drive through the country.
