Knightstown is a small town located in Henry County along the Big Blue River in central Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,148 residents. Knightstown was made famous in the 1986 movie, "Hoosiers." The historic 1950s era Hoosier Gym was used in the filming of the movie. There is a museum in the town dedicated to the movie and Indiana high school basketball. Knightstown is also the birthplace of aviation's pioneer, Wilbur Wright. Knightstown hosts two annual festivals. Jubilee Days held in early-mid June and The Hoosier Fall Festival held in September. Knightstown also hosts an annual car show and a music series on the town square. The Hoosier Gym also hosts Indianas best high school basketball players in the annual Hoosier Classic. Indiana is often called the "Crossroads of America," and Henry County is home to many small towns, where no one is a stranger and that old-fashioned, friendly hometown feeling is alive and well. The Old National Road, also known as U.S. 40, is the oldest highway, cutting across the entire southern part of the county. Interstate 70 was built in the late 1960's and is a major thoroughfare today. Knightstown is within a short drive from major urban areas such as Indianapolis and Cincinnati, Ohio.
