About French Lick, Indiana:


Hometown of the famous American basketball player Larry Bird, French Lick is also home to an Indiana Casino which drew national attention to the small town when it opened in 2006. Because of the multitude of sulfur springs (originally used for medical benefits in the 1800s), French Lick became a popular spa town in the 19th century. The sulfur springs are still used and considered a major attraction today.
