Perry County was formed on November 1, 1814 just 2 years prior to the state of Indiana being admitted to the Union and named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who defeated the British squadron in the Battle of Lake Erie (1813). Perry County became a focal point for settlers, in its early years, due to its location next to the Ohio River and the ease of obtaining supplies and the beauty of the area. The county seat of Perry is Tell City.
Tell City’s existence came from an 1856 meeting in Cincinnati Ohio where a group of Swiss-German immigrants met to organize a society known as the “Swiss Colonization Society”. The Society’s purpose was to obtain affordable homesteads, in an area with fertile soil, good water, ample timber and access to a river and railroad system, for factory workers, farmers, mechanics, and shopkeepers in a location where they could live in harmony. The Society purchased Tell City in July 1857. Initially called Helvetia, it was renamed Tell City named after the legendary Swiss hero and liberator, William Tell, who it is said shot an apple off his son’s head with an arrow.
The steamboat “TELL CITY” was built in 1889 and named after Tell City. It was used to carry passengers and freight on the Ohio River until he sank in April of 1917 near Little Hocking, Ohio. The pilothouse survived the sinking and is the oldest remaining steamboat pilothouse.Long Term Disability
