Hendricks County
Organized in 1824
Named for William Hendricks
The National Road, which led thousands of early Hoosier settlers of all cultures westward, cuts across the southern section of the county. Plainfield grew as an early Quaker community located on the National Road. Since the 1950s, Hendricks County's cities and towns have grown into residential suburbs of Indianapolis while the western section of the county continues to support Indiana's agricultural economy.
