ZIP code - 47281

Vallonia is located about three and a half miles southwest of Brownstown, Indiana on Indiana State Road 135. The town was settled by the French in the late 1700's. By 1810 the town had grown to include nearly 90 settlers. Native American Indian tribes, becoming defensive about the encroachment in their territory, began to harass the settlers. William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory and based in Vincennes, ordered a stockade to be built at Vallonia. The defensive structures included a stockade, garrison and blockhouses. Two companies of Indiana Rangers were stationed at the Fort Vallonia.

After the Indians were removed from the area, the defensive structures became unused, and rotted away. In 1972 replicas of the original structures were constructed from detailed plans which survived. Every year in October the town holds an event called Fort Vallonia Days which attracts 30,000 people and includes reenactments, a flea market and parade.

Morgan's Raid in Ripley County

Morgan's Raid in Ripley County
Morgan's Raiders entered Ripley County on July 13, 1863. They came from the west, entering from Jefferson County. Rexville, now on US 421 south of Versailles, was their first stop. The main body of Raiders traveled next to Versailles, but another contingent traveled north on the Michigan Road to Napoleon and into Decatur County. This group later rejoined the main group after visiting New Point in Decatur County, Huntersville and then Batesville. The main group of Morgan’s Raiders traveled east, burning bridges and confiscating money and jewelry along their route. They would also take fresh horses.

Morgan in Versailles
Morgan in Versailles

Morgan in Versailles
Construction on the first courthouse in Versailles occurred in 1821 in the center of the town square. This building required replacement by the 1860's. The county began construction on a new building during the years 1860 – 1863. The Civil War slowed down construction on the building. The courthouse was the target of John Hunt Morgan’s Civil War Raid in July 1863. Organization of a militia to defend the town was undertaken. It disbanded in the face of Morgan’s far superior and better-armed force. Morgan had about 2,000 troops and a cannon. He threatened to use the cannon on the newly completed Court House in Versailles, Indiana if any of the natives resisted his troops. Morgan’s troops confiscated the county treasury, food, possessions and livestock.

The Indiana Historical Society has placed along the route commemorative markers. At Rexville, Versailles, on the Milan Road at the Hassmer home, just north of Versailles; at Pierceville, Old Milan at Governor Harding's Home, and at St. Paul's Church south of Sunman, the Ripley County markers show that "Colonel John Morgan passed here on July 12, 1863", They encamped briefly near Sunman before leaving the county and entering Dearborn County.

Damm Theater

Damm Theater
117 N. Buckeye Street
Osgood, IN 47037


Opened in 1921 as the Columbia Theater by Gottlieb and Emma Herman and Richard Beer, the theater was purchased by Louis Damm and opened as the Damm Theater on February 22, 1922. A dance hall was on the second floor of the theater building.

The Damm family settled in Osgood, Indiana having emigrated from Bavaria in 1868. The Damms owned an earlier Damm Theater in Osgood which they opened in 1914, nearly across Buckeye Street from the present Damm Theater. When the Damms purchased the Columbia Theater, the Damm name was transferred to the new Columbia.

The theater was used as a community theater in addition to its use as a first run theater. During the silent film days, a piano-console Wurlitzer player organ was installed. In the depression, the organ was repossessed by the area Wurlitzer agent J. W.Whitlock of Rising Sun, Indiana. The Damm Theater dance hall also contained a Wurlitzer orchestration for dance music.

The theater was run by the Damm family until 1989 when Viola Damm passed on. Other than the removal of the organ, in 1989, the Damm Theatre was magnificently intact right down to the crushed red velvet and electrified gas lamps on the walls. Viola Damm was a delightful lady who made the best popcorn east of the Mississippi! She was highly apologetic about filling the piano pit with concrete.

In June 2008, the fourth stage of renovation was completed with the lighting of the marquee.

The Damm officially reopened on December 29, 2008 and is now open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday screening recent films. The theater is equipped for the hearing impaired.

Underground Railroad in Ripley County

The Underground Railroad has a strong tradition in Ripley County as many residents were involved in the movement of escaped slaves from the south. Napoleon, Indiana was a center for the Underground Railroad as several routes intersected there. A number of buildings, which still stand, were involved in this movement. A tunnel was even built under the busy Michigan Road, to move escaped slaves from one building to another. Osgood also saw heavy involvement, being at a terminus of routes coming from the south and east. Old Milan, just north of Milan, also played an important role, being on the route from Aurora and Lawrenceburg.

Ripley County Underground Railroad Driving Trails

The Ripley County Historical Society offers a brochure that outlines five driving tours that list places in Ripley County that were important in the Underground Railroad. The tours all begin at the Ripley County Courthouse in Versailles. Interested visitors may obtain the booklets at the Ripley County Historical Society on the Courthouse square in Versailles or from a rack outside the Ripley County Tourism Bureau's welcome center on US Route 50.
