Living in Pittsboro Indiana
Pittsboro, Indiana is really, really small. With a population of under 4,000 people, it isn’t even as big as populated as some city blocks in New York City. But this little piece of the Indiana pie has certainly still contributed to Hoosier history, it was once home to the famed Jeff Gordon. His racing prowess is perhaps unsurprising given the fact that Pittsboro is located just outside of Brownsburg, Indiana, home of the Lucas Oil Raceway and the national drag racing championships.
If you are considering moving to the Indy suburbs, but don’t know where to start, knowing what you are looking for can help narrow things down.
