    Did not realize how much history is in this town, until I went here. West Baden and French Lick have a rich history and if you want to discover it go to the museum. You find out how the towns were settled and got there names. You learn of all the hotels and casinos that were in the area at the hay day of the towns. They also have the largest diorama of one of the circus's that wintered in town. The people are very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend you visit if you are in town.
