Learn about native plantings and planting the right tree in the right place on Saturday, September 24th from 9-11 at the Jasper Train Depot. 

It's also a great chance to find out more about the depot, a historic replication of the 1906 station which was built to replace the 1879 station.

Then stroll along the city's river walk and take time to admire the Jasper City Mill, the third mill to be built on this site, the first erected in 1817 and then replaced in 1865 and torn down in 1964. The first mill's most famous visitor was Abe Lincoln who came to Jasper with grain from the family's farm in Spencer County, Indiana.
