LaGrange County is located in the northeastern part of Indiana, and it was officially established on February 2, 1832. The county was named in honor of the Marquis de LaFayette's French estate, Chateau de LaGrange, as a tribute to the Revolutionary War hero. The total area of the county is approximately 386 square miles, and it consists of several townships, including Bloomfield, Clay, Clearspring, Eden, and more.

The first permanent settlement in the area was formed by pioneers around 1828, and Shipshewana, which later developed into a major town in the county, was founded in 1838. LaGrange County was primarily an agricultural community, with the production of wheat, corn, and oats being the major contributors to the local economy. The agrarian lifestyle influenced the county's slow but steady population growth, making it a rural gem in Indiana.

One interesting aspect of LaGrange County is its substantial Amish population. It is home to the third-largest Amish community in the United States, with over 15,000 Amish residents as of 2021. This conservative and traditional community is known for their simple way of living, avoiding modern technology and maintaining their customs in areas such as clothing, language, and transportation. The presence of this unique culture adds to the county's charm and makes it a popular destination for tourists who want to experience the Amish lifestyle, shop for handmade goods, and sample traditional home-cooked meals.

A fun fact about LaGrange County is that it hosts the annual Shipshewana Quilt Festival, which is a major attraction for quilt enthusiasts from all over the country. The festival showcases a wide range of quilt styles, techniques, and patterns, and it offers workshops, lectures, and various quilt-related activities for participants to enjoy.
