           Mayor's Welcome  

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our beautiful city in the southwestern corner of Indiana. The City of Boonville is a wonderful city for raising a family. Our community is the only city in Warrick County and is the county seat. Boonville was once comprised of mainly coal miners. The local coal miners are very few now as compared to years past. Many of our citizens work at the nearby Alcoa Plant. There continues to be much farming in the area surrounding the City of Boonville.


The county has an incredible educational system. We are blessed with two elementary schools, one Middle School, and one High School. The Warrick County School Corporation offices are located in our city. The Boonville High School mascot is the Pioneer.

It is professed in our history that Abraham Lincoln, as a youth, walked from nearby Spencer County to our city to borrow law books from our local court system.

Boonville was named after Ratliff Boon. Ratliff Boon was one of the most famous public officials in our history. A cousin of Daniel Boone, he was most influential in the establishment of Boonville.

The City of Boonville has a downtown square setting which has some unique shops as well as the Warrick County Judicial Center which houses the court system as well as many of the county offices. Warrick Publishing publishes a weekly newspaper, the Boonville Standard. St Mary’s Warrick Hospital is located a few blocks from the downtown area. The Post Office is ½ block off of the downtown square. We still have the small town atmosphere with two locally owned groceries.

WBNL (1540 on your AM dial) Radio Station owned by Ralph Turpen which is available over the internet and has many listeners nationwide.

Our Warrick County Museum is located a block off of our downtown square and is a hidden gem.

In July of 2006 we opened our Water Park in the beautiful City Lake Park complex. Annually we have many visitors to our park. The beautiful park displays period lighting with a concrete walking path around the lake as well as shelter houses and gazebos for family gatherings.

We host Boo in Boonville every year on Halloween for safe trick or treating and this event draws families from the surrounding area. 

We hope you find our historic town as special as we do.

Thank you for visiting!

Mayor Pam Hendrickson
