Posey County Resources

Welcome to posey county!

WHERE THE WABASH AND OHIO MEET WE CALL HOME 

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.

The Cooperative Extension Service is one of the nation's largest providers of scientific research-based information and education.
