Hosted By: City of Greenfield
Among the greats of the city were James Whitcomb Riley,es Whitcomb Riley, the “Hoosier Poet”; two famous artists, Will Vawter and Dick Black, Earl K. Smith, composer of “Down by the Old Mill Stream”, and Rev. Charles O’Donnell, later President of Notre Dame.
A statue of James Whitcomb Riley, which stands in front of the Hancock County Courthouse, was erected in 1918. It was purchased with money donated by school children from all over the United States. Each year, during the Riley Festival in October, the city’s school children parade to the statue to place flowers around it.
Today, Greenfield represents the best of both worlds blending its small-town atmosphere with managed growth as part of the greater Indianapolis metropolitan area. The population of Greenfield, 11,657 in the 1990 census, has continued to grow steadily due to the fact that Hancock County is the sixth fastest growing county in the state of Indiana.
In a letter to Helen Downing, James Whitcomb Riley described Greenfield as “My home and your home and your parents’ home and the best home outside of heaven.”

Tyner Pond Farm
For over 140 years Greenfield Nestled in Hancock County, Indiana, this fertile land grew corn before we happened upon it. We bought it in 2010 to feed people, not profits. Fields of corn have been replaced by cattle, chickens and pigs working their way through rich pastures, dining on nature’s salad bar and living as nature intended. Why? Because we saw a broken industrial food system and wanted to play a part in the local food movement.
