THE VISITORS CENTER WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC THROUGHOUT 2020. (Visitors can visit the tiny unmanned Visitors Center located in the parking lot of our main office. Brochures are also available inside the Rising Star Casino Resort 24/7. For additional assistance, e-mail [email protected])
Located at 217 N. High Street in Rising Sun, the Ohio County Tourism Visitors Center is staffed and waiting to assist locals and visitors alike with Ohio County and State information. On-site staff over materials on attractions, shops, restaurants, lodgings and events. The staff is also available to help book group tours.
Unoccupied for over two years, the Center’s 1950s structure was a Gulf gas station, grocery store, and lastly a veterinarian’s office. Purchased in 2018 by the Ohio County Convention, Tourism and Visitors Commission, the inside was extensively renovated. With minimal updating to the exterior, the Commission kept the remaining two outdoor light fixtures and the stand-alone lighted sign frame.
Currently the Center rents golf carts to tourists (thanks to grants from the Ohio County Community Foundation and Rising Sun Regional Foundation), and hosts a seasonal Farmer’s Market, Lion’s Club fundraisers, community-wide yard sale participants, and the Halloween/Santa House.
