Jay County is located in the northeastern part of the great state of Indiana. It was officially established on March 1, 1836, and was named in honor of Chief Justice John Jay, a Founding Father and the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The county seat is Portland, which also happens to be the largest city in the county.

The region was inhabited by Native American tribes, such as the Miami and Delaware, for thousands of years prior to the arrival of European settlers. In the early 19th century, European-American settlers began to arrive and settle in the area, attracted by fertile farmland and favorable living conditions.

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Jay County experienced economic growth and development, primarily in the realms of agriculture and manufacturing. The county has historically been home to several industries, including glass manufacturing, agricultural equipment manufacturing, and food production.
