Allen County Bicentennial

The Indiana General Assembly passed legislation in late 1823 designating a 660 square mile area of northeast Indiana to be Indiana's newest county. The legislation would take effect on April 1, 1824 and on that day Allen County was born. Named after Colonel John Allen, a military leader who helped the relieve the siege of Fort Wayne during the War of 1812, Allen County is today home to nearly 400,000 residents.


On April 1, 2024, Allen County will celebrate its bicentennial, marking 200 years since its official establishment. Through the end of 2024 we will endeavour as a community to... Remember our Past, Celebrate our Present, and Imagine our Future.
