Floyd County, Indiana is located in southern Indiana along the Ohio River. Shawnee Indians used the land as a hunting ground and evidence of their axes and arrowheads have been found in Floyd County. George Rogers Clark was given the land after the Revolutionary War. Floyd County was originally part of Clark County, but became its own county on February 1, 1819. New Albany is the county seat, and it was the largest city in Indiana until 1860, during the Civil War, when Indianapolis surpassed it in size.
