Bourbon, Indiana, is located in east central Marshall County in Bourbon Township,
at the junction of State Highway 331 and US 30 in the heart of TROJAN COUNTRY. The town of Bourbon was laid out in 1853 when
it was certain the railroad would be extended to that point.
It took its name from Bourbon Township, which was named after Bourbon County,
Kentucky, the former home of many of the early settlers. According to the 2010 census, Bourbon has a total area of 0.99 square miles.
The Bourbon Community Building-Gymnasium was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
Although Bourbon has experienced phenomenal growth over the years it has maintained the quality of life associated with a small town rural atmosphere. Our motto "Small Town, Big Heart" says it all!
