10 Awesome Reasons to Move to Huntingburg, Indiana

10 Awesome Reasons to Move to Huntingburg, Indiana

Joseph Acquisto

Jagoe Homes began building Hunters Crossing in Huntingburg, Indiana in 2017. It is the ideal setting for new home construction with budding families and people returning back to their favorite hometown. Not to mention… millennials? One of our very own New Home Sales Consultants, Joseph Acquisto, decided that it was the perfect city for him to move to and work in. “I really enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere,” Joseph brags, “it’s the perfect environment to raise my son in.”

So, where’s all of the fun in Huntingburg and where is it headed in the near future?

 

  1. The food is awesome.

    Joseph is a big fan of Mama T’s Steakhouse and the Gaslight Pizza & Grill. “I’ve also become really fond of the pizza at Ron’s Place,” he adds. Mama T’s Italian Steakhouse will satisfy your need for hearty pasta dishes and made-from-scratch quality food. Gaslight Pizza & Grill has served the people of Huntingburg for over 43 years with more than just pizza – although you can take a frozen one home with you if you didn’t get enough. They also serve delicious hoagies and salads for the lighter appetite. Both restaurants are located along the Huntingburg Historic 4th Street.

  2. There is always a family-friendly community event to go to.

    Recently, Huntingburg hosted the Christmas Downtown Stroll which Joseph found, “very enjoyable.” “Downtown Huntingburg is beautiful on its own and when you add the decorations and the participation of the community, it really made for a special event. And, of course, I am very excited for Bombers games to return this summer.” The Dubois County Bombers are a summer collegiate baseball team out of the Ohio Valley League. They wrapped up their 2017 season by earning the season playoff championship when they defeated the Hoptown Hoppers 12-3. Jagoe Homes is a proud sponsor of the Dubois County Bombers!

  3. You will never be in a bad mood around these folks.

    “The people really have been the best part of Huntingburg,” Joseph claims. “They are quick to call you friend and then treat you like family. They care about their community and are very invested in its direction It is a great thing to see in today’s world, and I feel very special to be a part of that.”

  4. Huntingburg is recognized as a Stellar Community.

    The City of Huntingburg was designated as a Stellar Community in August of 2014. It is currently one of only eight communities in the State of Indiana to receive this designation. This program is a multi-agency partnership designed to fund comprehensive community development projects in Indiana’s smaller communities. Stellar Communities has been recognized nationally as a premier community development program when it received the 2012 President’s Award for Innovation from the Council of State Community Development Agencies.

  5. School ratings are high.

    Your children will receive a great education in Huntingburg. Each of their schools have received national attention for graduation rates and test scores. While there are only an elementary, intermediate, and high school in the city, higher education is not a far reach for graduates. The University of Southern Indiana is located in Evansville, IN, while the University of Louisville in located in Louisville, KY, as well as many other universities and colleges in those cities. Many students also travel to Owensboro to seek higher education.

  6. Your kids will love it here, and your parents too.

    While the kids have plenty of room to live and grow in Huntingburg, this is also a great city for retirees. Recently, the city has launched a project to redevelop their main hospital, St. Joseph’s. The north and west wings of the main building will become independent living senior housing for residents 55 years of age or older; the south end of the former hospital and adjacent building will be targeted to provide community healthcare; an unused building will be re-purposed for a new Senior Citizens center.

  7. Workforce opportunities are flourishing.

    In the beginning of 2017, MasterBrand Cabinets (which go into every Jagoe home) announced that they will continue to grow its facilities in Jasper, Huntingburg and Ferdinand, IN. Their combined facilities in Dubois County boast more than 2,200 employees to date. MasterBrand stated that, “it is the passion, creativity and dedication of the employees that helps us to achieve our mission of making it easy for customers and channel partners to select, purchase and install attractive cabinetry for the home.” In addition to MasterBrand’s expansion, Dubois County has secured property to address the top priority in Dubois Strong’s strategic plan to meet the need for workforce housing in the city. As many as 140 single-family, affordable housing units will be developed – over a $20 million investment.

  8. Don’t miss out on the Huntingburg Historic 4th Street.

    Joseph is big on this strip of the city. He says that the coolest part, “would have to be the Historic Downtown of Huntingburg. Aside from how great it looks and feels, it offers everything – eating, shopping, and there is even a yoga studio! Having [Hunters Crossing] so close is certainly a unique opportunity for the city and for the families that live here. You’re able to enjoy some of the best that Huntingburg has to offer, and home is right around the corner.” Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this historic business district, once destroyed by a fire in 1889, has been lovingly restored to a charming Victorian downtown, housing more than two dozen locally owned antique and specialty shops and unique eateries. The walking tour takes you back to the 1800’s and early 1900’s, a time when most of the two-story Italianate and late Victorian commercial buildings along historic 4th Street were constructed. The brick-paved sidewalks and 1800’s façade provide a quaint setting for many special events throughout the year.

  9. Major landscaping and functionality improvements are coming.

    Aside from major city projects like the 9th Street extension, the 14th Street reconstruction, and the 4th Street water main replacement, we at Jagoe Homes are most excited about the park that is being built just behind Hunters Crossing! “The park is going to be a great compliment to both the city of Huntingburg and to our community here in Hunters Crossing,” Joseph explains. “I know that all of the children who currently live in our community are very excited to have a place to go and play that will be so close to home. It certainly makes Hunters Crossing a more desirable place to build your new Jagoe home.”

  10. New home construction is now available!

    Joseph and his Jagoe team partner, Brett Lyon, are eager and ready to help you build in our newest community in Huntingburg, Hunters Crossing. “At Jagoe Homes, we’re able to fit the need of each family the builds with us,” Joseph claims. “Here in Hunters Crossing, we currently have a multitude of different families – young couples, retirees, single parents, empty-nesters, and a even family of five! Hunters Crossing offers that sense of community, as if the city itself didn’t have enough, but this is rather for you and your family to enjoy neighborhood living. Building is such a wonderful experience – you get to create it! Brett and I get folks into their dream home for every stage of life.”

Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes

On Saturday, December 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM, guests are invited to tour each of these lovely homes.

Special Thank You to Welborn Floral Company for our Stunning Exterior and Interior Greenery Decor!
Amelia Laster, AKBD, Jagoe Homes Design and Merchandising Manager

Amelia initially decorated our gorgeous 4200 Model with a predominantly black, white, gold, and gray pallet, so she “felt the Christmas decor needed to reflect personality of the home.” Of course, the family tree traditionally belongs in the living room, but how do you decorate a bedroom? Amelia says that, “it’s easy to bring holiday cheer to any bedroom by adding pillows that match your color scheme, filling vases or trays with ornaments and placing them on a nightstand or a dresser, or even replacing a focal piece on the wall with a wreath.”

Lights are sure to bring your home many “cheers”. If the commonly-used string of lights isn’t really your thing, light up the season with a brilliant array of paper luminaries. Line them up along your front walkway, or scatter them on your front porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display that’s simple and affordable. A holiday wreath can also make a cheery entrance to any home. “A traditional greenery wreath with a simple red bow is absolutely my favorite,” Amelia claims. “I have long needle pine wreaths throughout my home. I’m also a big fan of red berry wreaths with ornament wreaths being a close third.”

As for sticking to a more traditional color palette, Amelia recommends a lot of red and green with touches of black. “This year,” she adds,” I included black and white buffalo check in my decor.” Another traditional pattern is not just for collared shirts – use a plaid theme for your Christmas decorations for an old-school take on holiday cheer. To avoid overloading on one pattern, don’t be afraid the mix and match plaids of varying sizes and scales. Start with a transparent plaid garland, and decorate with metallic, solid-colored ornaments.

 

Tickets are now on sale for the Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes for $25 online advanced purchase, or at select retail outlets until December 8th. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the event for $30 at First Presbyterian Church located at 1328 Griffith Avenue from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.
