How'd this place come to be? Well, let us tell you a little story. It's almost always been around, but it's "defined" history began in 1892 when the Old Hickory Furniture Company was formed. The Morgan County Public Library’s Digital Archive has a collection of photographs of Old Hickory furniture onHomes for Sale Martinsville IN display at Marshall Field & Co., that big-city retailer.

A few years later, a Martinsville entrepreneur (though at that time he was probably called a "lunatic") turned local swampland into fisheries, creating Grassyfork Fisheries. Well, that lunatic made it work ... and work very well, thank you. Once dubbed the “Goldfish Capital of the World,” Martinsville still has several large fisheries selling to many parts of the world. (Makes sense: southern Indiana and goldfish, the perfect combination)(And - if oil is black gold, are goldfish gold gold?). With fish, the town's landscape was forever changed.

For decades, from the early part of the 20th century until the '60s, a hugely popular Martinsville attraction was its many artesian mineral water health spas (then called sanitariums) valued for their health benefits (not sure we'd want to say we went to a sanitarium these days, eh?). It sounds crazy, but up until the late 1960’s, almost a dozen sanitariums were in operation for various periods of time, including the first African-American spa in Martinsville.

Travelling by rail and by car, people came to bathe and refresh in the mineral springs and waters. Many celebrities visited Martinsville in the early 20th century to enjoy the mineral waters and spas for their (perceived) therapeutic and health restoring qualities. On top of what used to be the National Sanitarium a refurbished neon sign still says "Martinsville City of Mineral Water” as you might have seen nearly a century ago.

The city's heritage of the mineral waters and spas is still reflected in Martinsville High School's team nickname, "The Artesians."  You might recognize the name of one famous Artesian,
John Wooden, the "Wizard of Westwood."Martinsville IN Homes for Sale
