Jasper, Indiana was settled in the 1800's by immigrants from Baden, Germany. Here, within abundant forests, a thriving wood industry was born. And so craftsmen, carpenters, masons and farmers came to Jasper to find a better life...and they have. Even today with so many features attracting new industry, Jasper maintains a quality of life that residents of other communities can only dream about. http://visitduboiscounty.com
