Welcome to Town of Thorntown Town Council President Welcome Letter
Hello and welcome to the Town of Thorntown, one of the most desirable, rural places to live in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area. Thorntown is located in the Northwest Corner of Boone County, Indiana, at the corner of SR 47 and SR 75. We are just a 45-minute drive to Indianapolis and 45-minute drive to Lafayette, but you wouldn't know it when you arrive. Thorntown is blessed to be situated in a rural portion of the metro. As a result, our community's small-town culture is still very much alive. The award-winning Western Boone School System serves Thorntown, and Thorntown Elementary School is located within the town's boundary. In addition, the town is home to the Tom Johnson Memorial Park, Sugar Creek Arts Center, Big Four Trail, Carnegie Library, and special community events such as the Thorntown/Sugar Creek Annual Fish Fry Fundraiser and Festival of the Turning Leaves.But one of the most extraordinary things about Thorntown, which I love the most about our community, is our people and their pride in their community. All that Thorntown is and will become is rooted in our people's talents, dedication, and hard work.If you already live in our town, thank you for the value you bring to our community! If you are considering a relocation soon or out and about and considering a visit, please do! Please stop by one of our fabulous boutiques, such as The Bargain Boutique or Wyld Roots, and enjoy a unique dining experience at The Farmers Table or Stookey's Restaurant. If you're just passing through, make sure to check out our incredible carry-out dining option with J.C. Cocina, located behind Sugar Creek Art Center. I can assure you that you will be glad that you did.
