The city of Attica is located in Logan Township in Fountain County, Indiana. First platted by George Hollingsworth in 1825, Attica was incorporated as a town in 1849. In early 1866, a city charter was obtained and the first city election was held on the third Monday in June of that year. In June 1966, a seven-day centennial celebration was held that included the pageant, "The Attica Story," a tour of distinctive homes, a carnival, an ice cream social and a number of other activities that brought a record number of visitors to the small community during the weeklong celebration.
