The Montgomery County Courthouse is a landmark for the community of Crawfordsville
Montgomery County and the county seat of Crawfordsville will be teaming up to jointly brand the community and the area as a way to attract more businesses and visitors.

City and county leaders say they already have a close partnership for infrastructure improvements and community programs, but they need an organized, joint effort, to market those improvements.
Pivot Marketing will host focus groups, conduct surveys and gather interviews with stakeholders from across the county to help develop a strategy and brand.
