About Us

812 The Magazine celebrates southern Indiana – its cities, its small towns, its natural beauty, its rich history, its local food and its creative, friendly people. We want to remind ourselves why it’s a compliment to be called a Hoosier and to tell visitors why Indiana is not just a crossroads, but a destination.

From south of Indianapolis to the Ohio River, we’ll lead readers down highways, back roads and hiking trails to find intriguing places they haven’t been and meet remarkable people they haven’t met. We’ll explore the quiet beauty of our parks and forests and rivers in all seasons. And we’ll venture into southern Indiana’s past to see how it shapes both our present and our future.

812 was conceived, reported, written, photographed, edited and designed by students in J481: Creating an Indiana Magazine at the Indiana University Media School. 

Contents may not be reproduced without written consent of the school.
