Visitor Center

A busy river port during the steamboat era, Evansville has retained much of its historic appearance, with houses representing nearly every major architectural style from the late 19th and early 20th centuries to the present. At Fourth and Vine streets is the restored Beaux Arts-style Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse. The interior is noted for its marble floors, wainscots, oak woodwork, brass handrails and hardware.
Other period structures are the 1885 Italianate Gothic Willard Library at 21 First Ave., the Old Post Office at 100 N.W. Second St. and the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum, 300 Court St. A number of other historic structures line the serpentine Downtown Walkway, a traffic-free redevelopment of the old Main Street shopping district.
Ford Center, 1 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., is an 11,000-seat multipurpose arena that hosts concerts, events, the University of Evansville men's and women's basketball teams and the Evansville IceMen minor league hockey team. Phone (812) 422-1515 for the box office.
Wesselman Park, 551 N. Boeke Rd., offers diverse recreational facilities including softball fields, sand volleyball courts, handball and tennis courts, batting cages and a fitness trail. Marked trails score the 200-acre park and adjacent Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve, an area of virgin hardwood forest.
