Hendricks County (Images of America) (Paperback)
Located in west central Indiana, Hendricks County is unique in that it is the only Hendricks County in the United States. The earliest pioneers entered the wooded area in 1820, settling on White Lick Creek between Plainfield and Mooresville. In 1824, the population numbered about 1,000, and the first homes, churches, and schools were built from local timber. Four courthouses and jails have been constructed over the course of the county's history. It has evolved from being supported by farming and small business into a mixture of urban and rural settings. Hendricks County continues to see population growth, and it is one of the fastest-growing counties in the state.
