Victor is an unincorporated community in Monroe County, Indiana, United States approximately 10 miles southeast of Bloomington and 8 miles northeast of Harrodsburg at the junction of W. Milton Road and S. Victor Pike.

Victor is in farm country but is also the home of Victor Oolitic Stone Company, a limestone quarry and limestone fabricator in existence since 1898.[1]

A location between near Victor and Harrodsburg on Clear Creek was chosen by Col. John Ketcham for his home and grist mill.[2]
