Enjoy quiet seclusion at this farm just 11 miles from historic  Ohio river town, Madison Indiana just an hour from Louisville, Kentucky to the southwest and Cincinnati, Ohio to the northeast.

Suzanne Crouch’s office bringing innovation and individualized local development to Madison.

Supporting a full service Hospital (Kings Daughters’), Hanover College and plenty of shopping, Madison, Indiana has become a favorite find for people on the move.  You can have it all here- rural and small-town life with low taxes and a low cost of living, just an hour from all the amenities of urban life.
