Hamilton County was founded in 1823 and named after Alexander Hamilton. While it has it’s roots in agriculture, following WW II, the north side of Indianapolis grew by leaps and bounds. Today it is one of the fastest growing counties in the U.S and has been granted the status of One of the Best Places to Raise a Family by Forbes. It is home to 3 of the states top 20 largest cities and towns: Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville, which is the County Seat. The man-made Geist and Morse reservoirs provide recreational opportunities and waterfront living. The southern half of the county is heavily populated and the northern half generally agricultural. There are so many things of interest in Hamilton County that we have broken it up into three different Photo Galleries.
