In Seymour if you stop at the Jackson Co. visitor's center, you are able to purchase a driving tour that will guide you through the town and various John-specific sites!  I believe there is still a map of sites as well!!

Enjoy your tour!

Visit a small town in Jackson County called MEDORA. This is where Hurt so Good Video was made, and it was also used in several other videos....there is a covered bridge there, longest in the country, just saved and restored. This is where he was for part of PINK HOUSES, you see large beems...its inside the covered bridge. Get a map head from Seymour through Brownstown and head towards Salem Indiana, you will be in a community called will see alot of the barns, churches etc in his videos.
I was born in Seymour and raised in Medora, if you are a thrill seeker, there is a train tunnel that is "haunted" its called the Tunnelton Train Tunnel. You will need to take hwy 50 out to Tunnelton (Lawrence county) I am the great grandaughter of the "ghost". Have fun, southern Indiana is beautiful. If you take hwy 446 on the causeway at the lake, you can see John's home. (Bloomington)
