USDA Boundary Details

Jefferson County, located in the great state of Indiana, was officially established on November 23, 1810. Nestled along the Ohio River, it was named in honor of Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. The county seat of Jefferson County is the city of Madison, which was founded in 1809, just a year before the county itself was established.

The area was initially inhabited by Native American tribes, predominantly the Shawnee, and white settlers began arriving in the late 18th century. As the population steadily increased over the years, the region became an important hub for agriculture, industry, and commerce. Victoriana style homes and historic sites that date back to the 1800s can still be found in the city of Madison, which experienced its heyday during the steamboat era.

One fun fact about Jefferson County is the presence of the historic "Eleutherian College." Established in 1848, it was among the first institutions to provide higher education opportunities to both African Americans and white students without discrimination long before the Civil War. Today, it serves as a historical landmark, with the Eleutherian College Classroom and Chapel Building having been restored and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
