Do you mean Louisville? If you are, then Louisville is actually Kentucky and it is on the Kentucky/Indiana boarder next to Jeffersonville, Indiana.

HI!

I don't live in Lewisville, but close enough to it. Lewisville is a small town, they don't even have a stoplight...only one red flasher light; The population might be 400 or 500. Really more like a farming town I'd say. The School there is good however...'Tri Hi Schools' (three townships go there); when looking at homes the information will say 'South Henry School', but it's talking about Tri High. I do believe the 'Guyer Opera House' is still up and running, they do plays and what not there. The park is tiny, but the town is cute and quaint I guess and close enough to New Castle for small shopping and close enough to Richmond for a little bigger shopping or schooling (IU East is located there). Drive east a bit and you have Cambridge City...this is a pretty cool little town. They have pizza shops and a drive-in diner and the well known Welliver's! This is a smorgasbord, but this isn't just your average buffet...they have some of the best seafood and fish around. The steaks are good as well and usually there is a line to get in! Just a little farther east is Centerville, they have some places to eat and antique stores and gift shops and such. Hagerstown is east of New Castle on 38, they have a couple of nice family owned restaurants to eat as well. I guess my point is that Lewisville is small small small with really nothing to do, however a short drive in any direction really and you'll find some great family owned restaurants, shopping, bars, etc.

I grew up in Lewisville and still have family there. Lewisville is a quiet peaceful town but If I was looking in that area, I would look in Knightstown or New Castle first. Lewisville has deterioriated over the years as the area has gotten depressed and the industries (especiallly Chrysler) have left the county. Except for a couple of antique stores, there is nothing in Lewisville anymore. You can't even get a cup of coffee. The most interesting thing in town is the cemetery. What has really been lost is the sense of community the town used to have. It used to have a thriving little drugstore/diner where everyone met everyone on the way to pick up their mail, there was a little grocery store and the skating rink ran everynight in the summer. You probably can get a good price on a house - I'm pretty sure one of the nicer ones is for sale right now. But, if you have children, you might want to look closely at school opportunities and another consideration is access to good medical care. Living in a town of about 400 people sounds kind of romantic but Mayberry it ain't.

I see the inquiry is about 6 months old, but just wanted to warn you not to buy a map from Emer3sons. Welliver's is in Hagerstown, Cambridge City. Cambridge City is between Lewisville and Richmond, NOT East of Richmond.
Lewisville is about 35-45 minutes south of Muncie, of Ball State University fame. Medical care is available at Ball Memorial Hospital and its affiliates.
Also, Knightstown schools system has very high taxes. We DO have a stoplight now, not just a flasher. We had some StopLight Festivals to help pay for it, which included some nice old-car drive-in...but the festival was not held in 2007.
Lewisville is quaint, a nice place to retire to, and we love it here!
