Petersburg Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 6 photos

Petersburg,In. is located on Indiana state highway 57 between Oakland City and Washington,In. It is a small town that is off any beaten path,but it is a nice quiet community that was nearly wiped out several years ao by a tornado that ripped through Southern Indiana.
Coal mining and farming are 2 of the major industries here.But the mines are downsizing and there really isn't an industry there to attract new residents.

    Now that's the way I like to fish! Clever comments about Petersburg.

    Lovely log cabins. And the picture of the lake John is so beautiful the colours of the trees and their reflection in the lake is just wonderful.

    I passed through there not too long ago. Sounds like good fishing.

    Very nice place, I see. I am not a fan of fishing (yet!) but why not! Hornady Park looks great!

    Something tells me you went there to fish :-) Nice spot even if the place shuts shop at sundown.
