Description
German woodworkers who settled here in the early 1800s took advantage of the area's abundant forests to make Jasper a center for furniture making and cabinetry. Today, the town is home to several major furniture manufacturers and calls itself the “nation's wood capital.”
Artifacts from the area's history are displayed at the Dubois County Courthouse. The Renaissance Revival-style building, completed in 1910 and renovated in 1996, contains 50,000 bricks from the county's original courthouse. Visitors can tour a reconstruction of the Jasper City Mill, on the Patoka River in the Old Jasper District, and view the working waterwheel.
