Old Town Waverly Park in Morgan County, Indiana has an opportunity to be the jewel in a chain of potential park spaces along the White River. At one time, this park site’s history included a bid at being the state capital. At its high point, it was a landing along the canal which fed three different mills. At its low point in 2008, flooding destroyed the last community to call historic Waverly home. The county parks aims to restore the functions of the floodplain, protect the remaining historic resources, and create abiding features that will remind us of what has come to pass on this site. Old Town Waverly Park in Morgan County educates about our built and natural worlds, and it is a place for the community to connect to the environments of the past, present, and future.
