So you think you know Floyd...

Known and Forgotten places give county a colorful history

Story by Ben Schneider in the Ledger-Tribune of March 8, 1998.
Copied from a Southern Indiana Genealogical Society poster/presentation.

While Floyd is the second-smallest county in the state, it was at one time scattered with several villages and bona-fide towns.
Some places like Greenville survived, some like Providence are well remembered, and others like Fisherville are lost and completely forgotten.
