Carroll County

Interestingly, the county was named after Charles Carroll of Carrolton, who was then the only surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence.  It was the 58th of Indiana’s 92 counties to be formed.  Before the railroad system was built, the Wabash and Erie Canal construction ran through the county, (around 1840), which provided a way to transport products and goods as well as new settlers.  The largest town in Carroll County is Delphi, taking its name from the ancient Grecian city, and is the County Seat.
