Ripley County, Indiana

Old Court House
This county bears the name of General E. W. Ripley, a distinguished officer of the war of 1812.
The general surface of the county may be called level, except in the vicinity of the water courses, where the hills are abrupt and high.
The bottom lands along Laughery, and other streams, are rich and fertile, but they are, for the most part, quite small;
the uplands, when dry, usually produce well, and much of them is based on beds of blue limestone;
but large tracts incline to be wet, and will be adapted to grass only, until drained.

Versailles is the county seat, and is located nearly in the centre of the county.
Ripley county has made very good success in agriculture and education.
