About Us

The Herald-Tribune is located in the rolling hills of southeastern Indiana. Batesville is home to several large companies, including Hillenbrand Inc., Hill-Rom Holdings and Margaret Mary Health. Over the years, the Hillenbrand family has been responsible for the growth of the community and development of many retail businesses, including The Sherman, which is one of the oldest inns and restaurants in the state of Indiana.

Founded just over 150 years ago, the area is rich in German heritage, first serving as a way station for rail workers. Forests full of hardwoods led to the founding of many furniture factories in Batesville. Today Weberding Carving Shop and Heartwood Manufacturing call Batesville home.

Recently this area has become well-known for its excellent public and private schools: Batesville Community School Corp., St. Louis School and Oldenburg Academy.

Tudor style buildings are abundant in the area, and Oldenburg, known as the Village of Spires, is home to the picturesque Sisters of St. Francis Convent. Midway between Indianapolis and Cincinnati, home growth is on the rise as people search for a slower pace than what those cities offer. Batesville's small-town atmosphere partnered with big city convenience is a huge benefit for those moving to the popular community.

The Herald-Tribune is an award-winning publication that has been serving Ripley and Franklin counties since 1891, reaching over 9,000 readers weekly.

When partnered with sister publications in Decatur and Rush counties, you can reach over 90,000 readers who are ready, willing and able to buy your product or service.
