Welcome to Discover Batesville

When people discover Batesville, they discover a small city with big opportunities.

Batesville has been a thriving community for over 200 years—and it’s still going strong. We are proud to be home to entrepreneurs who are changing the world through their innovative spirit and dedication to their craft, businesses that are helping drive our economy forward, and schools that are preparing our children for success. This quarterly e-newsletter and our website will highlight this vibrant community as we seek to uphold its growing economy and promote all that makes Batesville a city worth discovering.


Discover Batesville was created to stimulate the economic growth of our community. It provides us with the opportunity to tell “our story” to individuals and businesses outside the community. Batesville is a modern, vibrant community full of opportunity and we need to get the word out. The campaign has been designed to promote all of the wonderful assets Batesville has to offer in a way that encourages business investment and job creation. It is designed to help us sustain our economic vitality now and in the future.

Part of the Discover Batesville strategy includes the creation of a quarterly e-newsletter. The newsletter is designed to keep readers informed of relevant economic topics, provide information on current programs and resources available, and engage residents and business owners in order to achieve our city’s economic well-being.


The overall goal of the marketing campaign is to strengthen, and foster growth in Batesville. We want entrepreneurs, families, retirees, and remote workers to feel connected to our community. We have built a robust marketing strategy with Discover Batesville to show current and future residents, and potential and current business owners that we are making progress and investing in infrastructure, broadband, a diverse job marketplace, and a variety of housing options. Whether you’re a CEO seeking a location for an expansion project, or a young family looking for a place to call home, the Discover Batesville website has every detail you need to make those important decisions. Our newest addition, the e-newsletter will help us feature why Batesville is a great place to live or relocate for people of all ages.
