Greentown is an incorporated town in eastern Howard County about 8 miles east of Kokomo. The town has a population of nearly 2,500 people. The only other incorporated town in Howard County is Russiaville with just over 1,000 people.
Greentown is sustained from Highway US 35, Indiana State Road's 19, 22, and 213 all going through town, with the northern terminus of 213 in Greentown on South Maple Street. The other mentioned roads are collectivly what is Main Street of Greentown.
The town is the only other community in Howard County other than Kokomo to have a stop light, Greentown only has one though. Main Street in Greentown all the way to Kokomo is in talks of it being widened to either three lanes in total or four up until the bridge in Greentown, and then being 3 lanes including the turn lane up until Hammer Street again.
A turn lane is also due to be added to Merridian Street at the light (if one can fit without risking the lose of downtown parking), and at Hammer Street and Maple Streets where they meet Main Street. Main Street's sidewalks are also being extended to the somewhat recently annexed subdivisions on the west end of town.
It is also about 18 miles south-west of Marion, about 14 miles west of Gas City, and Jonesboro, and about 3-4 miles west of the town of Swayzee, which has around 1,000 people. It is also about 39 miles north of Indianapolis, and about 30 miles north of the Noblesville/Fishers/Carmel area. Greentown is also only a mile or two from the unincorporated communities of Sycamore, and Jerome also in Howard County.
