Enjoy a Wedding Reception, Birthday Party, Vacation or Tour around Anderson’s Charming Landmark Locations
Like many other cities around Anderson, the city thrived during the discovery of natural gas in Indiana but prior to that, the region was settled by William Conner, his wife and family, who were Lenape people. Conner, while maintaining a part of his land, sold part of the land which is where Anderson is today, to John and Sarah Berry. John Berry was also the first person to have laid out a concrete plan for the city and it was named after Chief William ‘Adam’ Anderson. While today, the city center is at the headquarters of Church of God (Anderson) and Anderson University, businesses have sprouted up all around its bustling center. Despite various setbacks, the city was quick to climb back up on its feet especially after the country’s various wars and the economy-paralyzing Panic of 1837. Things quickly came back to life after the construction of the Indianapolis Bellefontaine Railroad was completed, enabling the comeback of several key industries in the region. The Indiana Gas Boom spurred on other industries and Anderson became known as ‘Queen City of the Gas Belt’ and ‘Puncture Proof City’. It followed with the Church of God of Anderson building its world headquarters in Anderson in 1905 and the rest, as they always say, is history. Visitors, therefore, should not miss the chance to bring the charter bus to historic sites around downtown Anderson to learn about its historic buildings, Paramount Theater, Mounds State Park, Anderson Speedway and Hoosier Park Racing and Casino. The city was referenced in a few publications which includes Peanuts the comic strip featuring Snoopy and history novel, The Man with the Iron Heart.
