If you are looking for homes for sale, Whiteland has a great location and is one more step removed from “suburb”. Whiteland is a town that never grew like crazy, but things grew around it.
Whiteland, Indiana is located along Highway 31 south of Greenwood. There are actually two incorporated towns, Whiteland and New Whiteland. Together, population is around 10,000. Whiteland and the surrounding unincorporated areas of Clark and Pleasant Townships are served by the Clark-Pleasant Community School District.
Highway 31 is Whiteland’s main traffic thread. But Whiteland is only 5 minutes from I65, so it is very convenient as well. Whiteland has some rural areas for sure, but is very close to both Greenwood to the north, and Franklin to the south.
What are the homes for sale in Whiteland like?

And there is much more land available…it is a great place to find land if you are interested in building, or buy an existing home on acreage. Housing is very affordable and most people who live here own their own home.

The Clark-Pleasant Branch of the Johnson County Public Library is said to be the best library in the county! The staff is great and they offer a good variety of programs for all ages. Proctor Park is popular for its “catch and release” pond for those who love fishing! The city built a Walk of Freedom and a Pathway of Honor dedicated to those individuals who have protected their community and our nation through their selfless service in our country’s armed services and law enforcement, fire protection and emergency services.
Rascals Fun Zone is a favorite of my son. It is popular for birthday parties as it appeals to all ages. They have 4 go-kart tracks, bumper boats, mini-golf, duckpin bowling and an arcade.
My son and husband are huge IndyCar fans, so karting is their favorite pasttime. Whiteland Raceway is a premiere outdoor karting facility with high speed karts and banked curves.
Whiteland doesn’t have much of any retail or restaurants, and that is what is special about Whiteland. It can keep its small, quiet nature while the other suburbs hassle with commercial. But just so you can get something down the street, El Abuelo and Friend’s Diner are great local options when you want to be close to home. And the best thing…Whiteland has a Dairy Queen!
What people say about living here:
“There is a close knit community here. There is a low cost of living and plenty of jobs.”
“We really enjoy the quiet, slow, peacefulness that Whiteland offers while also being close to the city. My husband grew up here, and now I live here and it fits my introverted personality perfect. But my husband loves that he can get anywhere pretty quick and do anything he wants…he is a city boy at heart.”
“Whiteland is kind of sandwiched between some bigger places like Greenwood and Franklin. It makes it easy to get anything you need and commute times are quick. It is really great to have a small-town community so near the city and get the best of both worlds!”
