Carroll County was formed in 1828 and named after Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. The county seat of Delphi was established the same year. Carroll County was the 58th of 92 counties in Indiana to be formed. In 1840, the Wabash and Erie Canal was built and operated until the early 1870s.
The canal began operating in the summer of 1843 and continued for about a decade before it became apparent that the canal was not economically viable. The banks of the canal began to erode and had to be constantly dredged to continue operating. The last canal boat on the Wabash Canal made its last docking in 1874 in Huntington, Indiana having other sections shut down years earlier. Finally, in 1887, residents in Paulding County, Ohio, unhappy with mosquitoes breeding in the stagnant waters of Six Mile Reservoir, cut the dike and drained it in the Reservoir War. Several other counties continued the “war” on the canal due to the same issue. The canal was replaced by the growing railway use that made transportation and shipping of materials easier.Short-Term and Long-Term Disability
