Welcome to Martinsville

The City of Martinsville, was founded in 1822 and is the County Seat of Morgan County, Indiana. The Morgan County courthouse,
completed in 1859, is one of the very few pre – Civil War courthouses remaining in Indiana.

From 1888 until 1968, visitors sought out the many artesian mineral water health spas, which were called “Sanitariums” for health benefits. Over the
course of nearly 100 years, almost a dozen sanitariums were in operation during this period. On top of what used to be the
National Sanitarium a refurbished neon sign still displays "Martinsville City of Mineral Water" as it did then.

In 1899, Eugene Shireman, started Grassyfork Fisheries, giving Martinsville the nickname, "Goldfish Capital of the World."
Some of his fisheries can be seen today throughout Shireman Estates Subdivision.
