As long ago as 8,000 B.C., migratory tribes inhabited the area that would one day become Indiana. Once Europeans reached the area, France and Britain vied to control this frontier land, with Britain eventually succeeding. Even after the area was open to settlement, fights with the native tribes were common until 1811’s Battle of Tippecanoe. “The Crossroads of America” became the 19th state in 1816.
Since 1825, Indianapolis has been the state capital, and is currently the largest city in the state — with a population of 863,002. Because of its central location, the city was founded specifically to become the capital, and later became a major hub of transportation thanks to the roads and rail lines constructed there. Today, the city is known for hosting the Indianapolis 500 each May, which brings approximately 300,000 people to the city. The city was also the birthplace of Wonder Bread and hosted Elvis’ very last concert.
Following Indianapolis, the next largest cities are Fort Wayne and Evansville.
Fort Wayne has 264,488 residents and is known as the home of the very first professional baseball game. The driving industries behind Indiana’s economy are agriculture, manufacturing, and the service industry. As the state boasts the largest limestone deposit in the world, mining is also a major industry. The largest companies in Indiana are Anthem, Eli Lilly and Co., and Cummins.
