Official Website

Gibson County was formed in 1813. It was named for John Gibson, an officer in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. Gibson was Secretary of the Indiana Territory, serving as acting Governor on two occasions. The county had a large amount of abolitionists and, thus, was frequented by runaway slaves from Kentucky, via the Underground Railroad.
