Historical Note

Warrick County, Indiana was organized in 1813 and was named in honor of Captain Jacob Warrick, an officer killed at the Battle of Tippecanoe. Newburgh, located along the banks of the Ohio River, was first settled in 1803 and is the oldest town in Warrick County. Other cities and towns in the county include Boonville, the county seat, and Chandler, Elberfield, Lynnville, and Tennyson. Thornton Home, a retirement home for Presbyterian ministers, their widows, and missionaries first established in Evansville in 1890, was moved to Newburgh in 1908 following a fire that destroyed the Evansville house.
