Dubois County, Indiana

This county was named in honor of Toussant Dubois, who had charge of the guides and spies in the Tippecanoe campaign.
The northwestern portion of the county is undulating; the other portions level, and about one fifth of the whole is in the bottoms of
White river, Patoka and other streams. A greater portion of the county has an excellent soil. Considerable portions of the surface are subject to inundation with the spring and fall freshets. There are no prairies in the county. Timber was originally abundant, consisting of walnut, sugar, beech, hickory, poplar, and white and black oaks. The staple productions of the county are hogs, cattle, horses corn, etc. Among the material resources of the county, coal is abundant, andis already being mined with success. Coal mining is destined to become one of the great industries of the county, and will be conducted without injury to agriculture. Jasper, the county seat, is a small but enterprising town. The county is making considerable progress in agriculture, mining and education.
