Description

Created in 1803, Indiana County is a largely rural county of some 90,000 people spread across more than 800-square-miles. On occasion, events occur at multiple locations in various municipalities at the same time or the same day.

It is beleived that the county was named after the Indiana Territory, from which the states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois were created. Indiana County has the unusual distinction of being served by three different area codes.

The county seat is a town of 15,000 people that is also called Indiana. For decades the major industry of the town was coal mining, but most mines closed throughout the latter half of the twentieth century. Natural gas surveying and production have picked up some of the slack, and Indiana serves as the home of the largest privately owned drilling company in the United States.

Among Indiana County's most famous sons is Academy Award winning actor Jimmy Stewart (19081997).

The county proclaims itself the "Christmas Tree Capital Of The World", shipping over one million trees annually from the many Christmas Tree farms.
