The Old School Trading Post is locally owned and operated. We opened our doors as a full service bait and tackle store in 2011. Thanks to our loyal customers and the undeniable lure of The Greene/Sullivan state forest we have grown to what we are today!​ 

Shhhh!  Greene/Sullivan County Indiana has a secret. 

What is in the name?  We named the shop The Old School Trading Post for one simple reason. The shop is located in an old 2 room school school house that was built in the late 1800's. The White Rose School was the name of the school and is one of very few two room schools left standing. 

The Greene/Sullivan State Forest is a fantastic outdoor recreation destination. With its many campgrounds and lakes it's an unbelievable place to relax and recharge your batteries while enjoying a little fishing or a hike through the woods. 

The recently added cabins on state property are a great place to stay. However if you want something a little more modern with some extra amenities there are several private cabin rental opportunities. Check out our Area Lodging tab for more info on private lodging. The Old School Trading Post Bait Shop in Linton would love to help.
