City of Crawfordsville
Crawfordsville is the county seat of Montgomery County, Indiana and is home to over 15,000 residents. The City has consistently appeared in the top 100 Best Small Towns in America. It all started in 1813 when three rangers, Williamson Dunn, Henry Ristine, and Major Ambrose Whitlock noted that the site of present-day Crawfordsville was ideal for settlement. They returned a decade later to find at least one cabin built. Major Whitlock laid out the town in March 1823. Crawfordsville was named in honor of Colonel William H. Crawford. In 1832, Wabash College, an all-male liberal arts college was founded in Crawfordsville. Today Crawfordsville is still rich with history and the friendly mid-western life.
