Martinsville is a city located in Morgan County in south-central Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the population was 11,698 residents. The cityfs motto is the gGateway to Beautiful Southern Indiana.h In 2002, Martinsville survived a devastating tornado, and in 2008, the city experienced a catastrophe g100 year floodh. Despite these tragedies, the entire community united to rebuild Martinsville better than ever. The city of Martinsville is home to several historic buildings. The Morgan County courthouse, completed in 1859, still shines in its red brick and Italianate design. This is one of very few pre Civil-War courthouses existing in Indiana. In 1899 Eugene Shireman, a Martinsville entrepreneur, turned his swamp land into fisheries and started Grassyfork Fisheries. Once dubbed the gGoldfish Capital of the World,h Martinsville still has several large fisheries that sell fish to many parts of the world. From 1888 until 1968 visitors sought out the many artesian mineral water spas of Martinsville for health benefits. Over the course of nearly 100 years, almost a dozen health spa gsanitariumsh were in operation in Martinsville. Visitors would travel by car or train to bathe and refresh in the mineral spring waters. Many luminaries visited Martinsville in the early 20th century to enjoy the mineral waters and spas for their perceived therapeutic and health restoring qualities. On top of what used to be the National Sanitarium a refurbished neon sign still displays Martinsville City of Mineral Water, just as it did many years ago.@
