History of Downtown Anderson

The seat of justice was moved to Anderson in 1828 and was incorporated as a town in 1838.  That same year, the Central Canal came through Anderson – causing a growth in the population.  The town was incorporated twice more before it finally stuck in 1853.  There were a couple of factors that caused a great increase in Anderson’s population.  The first was the completion of the Indianapolis Bellefontaine Railroad that rode through Anderson.  Second, the discovery of natural gas in 1887 brought in several new industries to Anderson.  Today, there is a major effort to revitalize downtown Anderson.
