Did you know Darmstadt is a real town?  It seems there has been much confusion on whether Darmastadt is considered Evansville or not.  As they stated on the Darmstadt Indiana Facebook page, they are a real town. In Evansville there are two municipalities, Evansville and Darmstadt.

Here's what their Facebook post said:

It's crazy that after 47 years, we still have to convince people that we are in fact a REAL TOWN. :) Yes, if you live in the Darmstadt Town Limits, you live in DARMSTADT, INDIANA. NOT, Evansville, Indiana, that's a different city, and their city limits are a few miles away from us, with a different government and they levy their own taxes. Don't confuse where your mail comes from with where your property is located. :)
There are ONLY 2 municipalities in Vanderburgh County: Evansville & Darmstadt. THAT'S IT! Everything else are 'areas, neighborhoods & communities'. For example: McCutchanville, St Joseph, St Wendel, DogTown, Daylight, Earle, etc.... those are Neighborhoods out in the County, NOT MUNICIPALITIES. They don't levy property taxes or have to maintain their infrastructure and roads. :) Hope that makes everything clear as mud! HOMETOWN PROUD! DARMSTADT, INDIANA!

Darmstadt is also home to a lot of great places you probably know, like the Vanderburgh County 4H Center, The Darmstadt InnAmerican Honey Market, and of course The Bauerhaus.  So be honest, did you know Darmstadt was an actual town?  Or did you think it was just a neighborhood/community in Evansville?  It's okay to say you learned something new today.
