Discover a thriving American City
One visit to downtown Batesville and you’ll quickly see the small-city, midwest values that make us special. You’ll see it in the storefronts lining the street, and hear it in the way we greet strangers as friends, or in the way we talk with pride about our families, schools, and community. The roots that make Batesville the city it is today are stronger than ever, but that hasn’t stopped us from branching out, with investments in emerging arts and culture, cutting-edge healthcare, and industry-friendly leadership that empowers entrepreneurs and business owners.
Our community enjoys a low cost of living, affordable housing, and miles of parks, trails, and preserves. Batesville is a modern, thriving city, grounded in American values and the perfect place to grow families, build business, and experience all that life has to offer.
