Wakarusa

A quaint small town

With a single stoplight surrounded by century-old buildings, friendly shops and tree-lined sidewalks

EAT Stan Cook’s sausage stromboli served counter-side at Cook’s Pizza. Locals love the daily specials and Friday Night Fish Fry at the Corner Café. Peanut cashew nut butter pairs perfectly with the fresh breads at Grandma’s Pantry.

SHOP for candy you loved as a kid at the Wakarusa Dime Store. Discover the “wall-of-a-thousand drawers” at the 110-year-old Wakarusa Hardware or Amish-crafted hardwoods, from cabinetry to carving boards, at Schmidt Furniture Co.

PLAY at spring-time fun piling on pancakes at the annual Maple Syrup Festival. Marvel at the miniatures of Indiana’s architectural icons at the Wakarusa Historical Museum. Fall into wonderment seeing Waterford Street’s brilliantly colored sugar maples en route to the towering Pumpkin Tree in October.
