Knox County is located in Southwestern Indiana along the Illinois border. The Wabash River runs along the Western border and the White River runs along its south and eastern border. The city of Vincennes is the County Seat. It was founded in 1732 by French fur traders, being named after one of them, Sieur de Vincennes. It is the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in Indiana and one of the oldest settlements west of the Appalachians.
