Owen County was established by an act of the Indiana Legislature, 1818-1819, but was being settled as early as 1816.  Indiana became a state in 1816, and was settled from the bottom up by land-hungry, adamantly independent Scotch-Irish, German and English folk with Appalachian frontier roots, including veterans of the American Revolution and the War of 1812.  Comrades of Kentuckian Abraham Owen, who died in the Battle of Tippecanoe, named the county in his honor.
