The Levi Coffin House is a National Historic Landmark and was named one of the top 25 historic sites in the nation by the History Channel.

Levi Coffin Days, a town-wide festival is held each year on the third weekend in September. A parade, flea-market, and plenty of good food bring visitors to this community. Please call the Levi Coffin House at 765.847.2432 for details on limited tour hours during this yearly event.

Northeast of Fountain City, just south of the Ranolph County line, is "Hoosier Hill", the highest point in Indiana. The elevation is 1,257 feet above sea level, but the climb is a simple stroll up a small knoll.
