Long Description:
This library is located in Yountsville, Indiana, just off of of Indiana State Road 32, by the side of the parking lot of the new Yountsville Community Church building.

I could not find this little library listed on the Free Little Library website. However, there was an article in the local paper, the Crawfordsville Journal Review, about the Free Little Libraries in Montgomery County, provided by the Crawfordsville Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Hoosier Heartland State Bank, (visit link) of which, this is one.

Yountsville is an unincorporated community in Ripley Township, Montgomery County, Indiana, United States. Yountsville is named for the Daniel Yount family, who built a series of mills along a small spring-fed tributary of Sugar Creek. The mills and accompanying buildings provided work and supplies for the area in the 19th century. Fleece from sheep was brought to the mill to be cleaned, carded, spun, dyed, woven, and sewn into clothing and blankets. Though there are some stories of Civil War uniforms being made at Yount's Woolen Mill, there is no official documentation supporting this claim. Yountsville was a small thriving village through the mid-1880s, ceasing operations in 1905. With the introduction of the railroad, the importance of the area mills diminished and today, Yountsville comprises just a few houses and a local church. One of the mill buildings, an 1864 Greek Revival brick mill structure, stands on the bank of Sugar Creek. The 1851 Federal style boarding house / inn sits 60 feet above the mill overlooking Sugar Creek. (visit link)
