Knox County is located in Southwestern Indiana. It is along the state line that separates Indiana from Illinois. Furthermore, Knox is not far from the Kentucky and Indiana state line. Knox County is one of the two original counties that were established in the old Northwest Territory of 1790. It has significantly increased in size since then until reaching its present size in 1817.

Today Knox County has a total area of 524 square miles and the population is a little under 40,000 people. The county seat is Vincennes. Knox was named after Major General Henry Knox, U.S. Secretary of War. 

When Knox County was first created as part of the Northwest Territory the land extended up to Canada and also encompassed parts of Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. However, with the development of the surrounding states, Knox molded into its current form. It has great historical significance and is the only county in Indiana outside Clark County to be surveyed with the old French system using non-cardinal compass points.

Knox County is instrumental to the development of the Southwestern portion of the state. Education and health services are the two biggest employers in the county though the economy is quite diverse. Trade, utilities and transportation industries help service the second biggest group of employers in Knox County at 22 percent. Manufacturing has also grown significantly since the 21st century and now employs up to 21 percent of workers in the county. 

Knox County has helped supplement the local workforce by creating a Pathways Program which helps deliver well-trained, highly motivated new employees to the labor force. The county’s proximity to several other parts of the state has helped generate commuter jobs for many surrounding communities. 

Vincennes serves as the county seat and is also the largest city. The city is situated along the lower portion of the Wabash River and is approximately halfway between Evansville and Terre Haute. Vincennes has the honor of being the oldest continuously inhabited European settlements in the state, as well as one of the oldest settlements west of the Appalachian Mountains. It was established as a settlement in 1732 by French fur traders and has a very long legacy. 

The population of Vincennes is 18,420. The population of the city represents nearly half of all residents in Knox County. Prior to European arrival, the area of present-day Vincennes was inhabited by Native Americans, including the Shawnee and Wabash. Historical sites that were created by indigenous people have since been discovered in Knox County at Sugar Loaf Mound and Pyramid Mound. 

Some could argue that Knox County is at the point where the Midwest ends and the eastern territories of the United States begin. In fact, in 2007 Knox was one of five counties in Indiana that returned to the Eastern Time Zone following a change to Central Time Zone that was unpopular among some locals. There have been three different time zone changes in Vincennes since the Standard Time Act of 1918 was passed.

Knox County is home to the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park and Fort Knox II. Several historical buildings are also in the area including the oldest Catholic church in the state and oldest library. The remains of the Grand Rapids Dam are still evident in Vincennes. Grouseland, the former home of U.S. President William Henry Harrison, is also located in the county.
