The geographic center of Indiana lies in Boone County, 14 miles NNW of Indianapolis.  At 1,257 feet, the highest point in Indiana is located just west of Bethel near the Ohio border.  The name Indiana means "land of the Indians."

 

Brief History:  When the first Europeans arrived, Miami, Potawatomi, Kickapoo, Piankashaw, Wea, and Shawnee peoples inhabited the area.  In 1731 a French trading post was established at Vincennes.  The explorer La Salle arrived in the South Bend area in 1679.  A French fort was built At Lafayette in 1717. France ceded the area to Britain in 1763.  During the American Revolution, General George Rogers Clark captured Vincennes for the Americans.  At war's end, Britain ceded the area to the US.
