Among them is the Tell City Depot gift shop where all of the gifts are hand- crafted, with a mass amount of the unique wares being produced by local artisans who reside in or near Perry County. "The Depot's gift shop is branded as an Indiana Artisan shop, with several of the artisans being ofcial Indiana Artisans," said Antonia Webster of the Perry County Convention & Visitors Bureau. "This is what sets us apart from other shops. Visitors will discover everything from hand-painted silk scarves, created by an endorsed Indiana Artisan, to uniquely hewed wooden rocking chairs, built by a native sculptor." Also, the Depot accommodates the Tell City Farmers' Market, which has sea- sonal hours, from early summer through the autumn season. The building also includes an event room venue, open for community rental. While visiting the Depot, which opened in May 2013, spring breakers have plenty of other chances to enjoy the area. With Perry County encompassing over 60,000 acres of the Hoosier National Forest, visitors will not have to journey far to fnd trip ideas to fll their afternoon with; including family friendly Froehlich's Outftter and Guide Horse Trail Rides, which adjoins the scenic forest and com- prises all equine professionals. Thrill seekers can visit Eagles Wings Zip Lines, a zip line containing eight thrilling lines to choose from, all surrounded by striking panoramas or the forest canopy. For the less daring, the beautiful and picturesque Ohio River Scenic Byway transverses alongside the majestic Ohio River, within Perry County, and provides a spectacular view of the Hoosier National Forest, by automobile (See page 31 for more information). Tell City is a short drive from the historic Hufman Mill and Covered Bridge, and Lincoln State Park in Lincoln City. Guests can explore the 1,747-acre park that was the boyhood home to the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. (Visit www.in.gov for more information.)
