Warren County Courthouse in Williamsport, Indiana
This Site is Available for Adoption
Warren County is divided into 12 Civil Townships as follows: Adams,
Jordan, Kent, Liberty, Medina, Mound, Pike, Pine, Prairie, Steuben,
Warren and Washington.
Warren County was organized March 1, 1827. Williamsport wasn't always the County Seat. The first seat of justice of Warren County was located at Warrentown, two miles up the river from Williamsport. The Legislature on January 22, 1829, passed an act for the relocation of the County Seat. On the second Monday of June 1830, locating commissioners met at Warrentown, and after a liberal donation of land by William Harrison, selected the present site of Williamsport for the new County Seat. First settled in 1829 by Wm. Harrison, J. J. McAlilly, James H. Buell and Thomas Gilbert, by 1849 Williamsport contained 100 houses and 400 inhabitants. The Courthouse at Williamsport was destroyed by fire on Sunday, January 20, 1907. All the records but those of the commissioners were saved.
