GIBSON LAKE WILDLIFE HABITAT

Named an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society in 2005, the entire Gibson property consists of about 6,000 acres of reservoir, ponds, and wetlands. Gibson Lake itself is a 3,000-acre cooling reservoir with a surrounding levee and a 2-mile-long breakwater down the center. Because the warm water discharge keeps the lake from freezing in the winter, it often accumulates thousands of ducks and geese when the local lakes freeze. Located near the Wabash River on IN S.R. 64 west of Princeton, the habitat features a 160-acre wetland wildlife viewing area, a photographic blind, and two hiking trails near the Duke Energy main entrance.

GIBSON COUNTY COURTHOUSE

Often described as the jewel in the county’s crown, the Gibson County courthouse sits right in the center of its county seat of Princeton. The present structure is the third courthouse built in Princeton. Its cornerstone, which can be seen on the northeast corner of the building, was laid in 1884 and construction was completed in 1886 at a cost of $188,661.00.  With its four corner towers framing four original center entries that form a Greek cross, it stands as a picturesque example of the Romanesque Revival style of architecture. The north and south entries to the courthouse feature high relief male mascarons while the east and west entries feature high relief female mascarons. The exterior of the courthouse was built using limestone from Bedford, Indiana and brick manufactured in St. Louis. Interior construction materials included black walnut grown in the county as well as mosaic tiles and oak flooring.  The courthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and was also used as a model for a piece in the Original Department 56 Snow Village Collection. The courthouse is open Monday through Friday from 8 am until 4 pm. Guided tours can be scheduled by contacting the Gibson County Visitors & Tourism Bureau at 888-390-5825.101 North Main St.
