Nice collection of local maps, brochures, plus materials for other parts of IN. Annette explained the Chocolate passport promotion, and gave us a map and directions. Worth a quick stop---

Ask for a "chocolate tour passport" - u can get a little passport and go to various bakeries, candy places, etc. in Richmond and neighboring areas and get a free sample. Some... More

I stop at most Welcome Centers along the interstate highways and entering any region for the first time, and always look for the tourist information signs in every town. Many Welcome Centers have displays or mini museums about the area. No historic displays or museum here at this one, just a typical room full of brochures like you would find... More

The rest areas in this area are much nicer than the ones in The western states. They are clean and safe and many like this one have picnic areas for passing tourists.

Lots of info and pamphlets to find things to do. Clean, nice workers. Worth the stop. We were exploring Richmond for the day and found some interesting activities that we would not have known about if we had not stopped. Wayne County Historical museum is a definite must.
