county bears the name of Alexander Hamilton, the
first secretary of the United States treasure,
under Washington. He was an aid to General George
Washington throughout the Revolutionary War, first
Treasurer of the United States most remembered for
his fatal duel with Vice President Aaron Burr.
The surface of the county is level in some parts,
and gently undulating in others, and the soil,
without any exception, is excellent, being well
adapted to either corn, grain or grass.
There are, along White River, some dry, rich
prairies and at the heads of Cicero and Stoney
creeks, some wet ones, but they are quite small.
The balance of the county was originally heavily
timbered, with a good proportion of oak, popular,
walnut, sugar, hickory and beech. This is one of
the finest farming counties in Indiana, and most
of the farmers have become wealthy.
Noblesville is the county seat. It is located in
the center of the county, and is a thriving town,
with a population of about two thousand. It has
good railroad facilities, good schools and its
public improvements will compare favorably with
other town of equal population. There are quite a

The land containing Hamilton County was brought
into the possession of the United States by the
Treaty of St. Mary's in 1818. William Conner was
the first white settler in the county, in the
summer of 1822, after realizing there were enough
settlers in the area, Conner and other settlers
applied to the Indiana Legislature for a charter
authorizing them to become a separate and
independent county under Indiana law. The
application was presented to the Legislature at
the 1822-23 session and the act was passed and
approved by the governor on January 8, 1823. The
act took effect on the first Monday in April
(April 7), 1823. The County Commissioners first
met on May 5, 1823, at the house of William
Conner. Conner's house would also serve as the
County Circuit Court.
