Clark County Government Building

Clark County is located in southern Indiana and named after William Clark. William Clark was an American explorer, soldier, Indian agent, and territorial governor. Along with Meriwether Lewis, Clark helped lead the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803 to 1806 across the Louisiana Purchase to the Pacific Ocean, and claimed the Pacific Northwest for the United States. Clark County was established in 1801 and is strategically positioned across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.

Port of Indiana - JeffClark County is a major transportation hub with Interstate Highway Access, railroads, close proximity to the Clark Regional Airport and the Louisville International Airport, and direct access to shipping on the Ohio River with the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville facility.  The Port of Indiana - Jeffersonville is one of three State of Indiana ports that operate as Foreign Trade Zones. Approximately 2 million tons of cargo moves through the Ports of Indiana - Jeffersonville annually.   

River Ridge Commerce CenterClark County has diversified its economic base and continues to expand in exciting new directions. River Ridge Commerce Center© is an example of a new wave of economic redevelopment taking place in the county. The River Ridge Commerce Center© was formerly the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. The plant manufactured gunpowder during World War II, the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War. Congress declared the property surplus to its needs in 1998 and authorized 6000 acres of the property to be conveyed to the River Ridge Development Authority for economic development and other parts of the property to be used for expansion of the Charlestown State Park.

Indiana'S "Do Not Call" List

With stories of phone scams appearing in headlines lately, Indiana residents are urged to sign up for Indiana's "Do Not Call" list.

Registration is free for Indiana residents and available for residential land lines, wireless numbers, prepaid wireless numbers and voice over internet protocols.

While being placed on the list will eliminate most telemarketing calls, residents may still be contacted by certain groups such as insurance agents, newspapers, realtors and most charities. The easiest way to avoid dealing with these types of calls is by ignoring the call if you do not recognize the number.

Indiana residents can sign up for the list by clicking here.

Historic Reappointment: Clark County Museum Director to Continue as County Historian

The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) and the Indiana Historical Bureau are pleased to announce Jeanne Burke of Charlestown has been reappointed as the official Clark County historian.

In this role, Burke acts as a liaison between statewide agencies and local organizations. She also takes questions from the public.

"Two years ago, I got a call from a German woman who came to America to find her American father on the strength of his 1945 return address on a letter to her mother," said Burke.

Indiana Historical SocietyAccording to Burke, the woman was curious as to why her mother, then 95-years old, had not received more letters from him.

When Burke learned the man's name, she knew who he was. Sadly, he had died the year before.

"With the help of Kathy Chaney and Amy Jo Munich, we were able to surprise the woman when her half brother and two half sisters flew in to meet her in Jeffersonville," said Burke. "She—and they—were overjoyed."

Fielding questions from the public and finding answers is a large part of Burke's role as Clark County historian—and one she will take pride in for another three-year term.
