Get around



Shieldstown covered bridge. Built in 1876. Crosses the white river.



  • The Waffle House, 2509 E. Tipton Seymour, IN 47274, +1 812 522-9500. Open 24 hours/7 days a week. This is not the national chain restaurant, but a local establishment with a great breakfast. The German Pancake is mammoth in size.




By phone

Most telephone numbers in Seymour consist of +1 812 plus a seven-digit number, but a second area code (+1 930) was overlain onto the entire 812 area in September 2014. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 812 before these if no area code is indicated.
