The Oldest Cemetery In Indiana Is More Than 225 Years Old And Has A Fascinating History
Vincennes, Indiana is historically known as Indiana’s very first city, having been established in 1732 by a French military officer. When the Indiana Territory was established in the 1800s, Vincennes became its new capital. Once a super-busy outpost for the local fur trade, the town turned later to agriculture and found themselves to be quite successful within the trade.
