USDA Boundary Details

Starke County, located in the great state of Indiana, was officially established on February 7, 1835, and named in honor of General John Stark, a distinguished officer in the American Revolutionary War. The spelling discrepancy between the county and the general's last name was due to an error in the bill that created the county, and it remained as "Starke."

The county seat, Knox, was founded in 1851 and named after General Henry Knox, another Revolutionary War leader. The county comprises a total area of about 312 square miles (808 square kilometers), primarily consisting of rural landscapes with agricultural fields and forests.

During the 19th and 20th centuries, Starke County's economy was mainly driven by agriculture, timber, and the railroad industry. The county was at the heart of the Chippewa settlement, and by the time of the first European settlements in the 1830s, the Pottawatomie Native American tribe was the dominant group in the region.

Fun Fact: Each year, Starke County hosts the famous Yellowstone Trail Festival in Hamlet, Indiana, which started in 1915. This festival celebrates the Yellowstone Trail, America's first transcontinental automobile highway, which passes through the county from east to west. The event includes classic car shows, parades, historical exhibits, and various entertainment activities, making it a popular attraction in the region.
