The Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame, which honors players and others associated with the national pastime who were born or lived in Indiana, is located in Jasper. The town of Jasper is a regional center in southwestern Indiana, noted for its heavily German Catholic ancestral roots. Jasper has often been called the "Wood Capital of the World", boasting a large number of furniture companies, including Kimball International and Masterbrand Cabinets. It has an unemployment rate that hovers around 2.5 percent, making it one of the lowest in the state. Jasper is also home to the Southern Indiana Education Service Center (SIEC), Jasper Engines & Transmissions (largest remanufacturer in the market), and to a satellite campus of Vincennes University.
