Some Fayette County History

This county was appropriately named in honor of the distinguished General La Fayette.
The surface of the county is divided nearly in the centre by the west fork of "Whitewater", which is a very serviceable stream for manufacturing purposes. The surface of the county is rolling in the east and south, and level in the north and west, with a large proportion of bottoms, and every part of the county is susceptible of profitable cultivation. The forests were originally dense and valuable, consisting principally of walnut, poplar, sugar, beech, hickory, oak, etc. The soil is very productive, and the labors of the husbandman are attended with substantial rewards. The farmers of Fayette county are nearly all wealthy. They have good residences, their farms are well improved, good school buildings grace every district, and a general thrift pervades the whole county.
Connersville, the county seat, is one of the finest towns in Indiana. It has a population of about four thousand, excellent schools, good churches and fine public improvements. The city has ample railroad improvements, bringing it into direct communication with all points of importance. The commercial and manufacturing interests of the city are in a flourishing condition. The citizens are a very intelligent class of people, full of the right sort of public spirit.
