About Our Town
Welcome to Zionsville
While the first permanent settlement in Zionsville occurred in the early 1820s, the town of Zionsville was officially registered with the Boone County, Indiana recorder in early 1852.
Since its founding, the town has grown to become one of the most desirable places to live in the United States. This is due to the small-town character it maintains, highlighted by development along the Brick Street and a high quality of living.
Located a mere 20 minutes north from the major metropolitan amenities of Indianapolis, today Zionsville enjoys one of the most enviable lifestyles of any town in Indiana. A visit to Zionsville includes shopping at one of a kind boutiques and stores, visiting a variety of art galleries of nationally known artists and dining choices to fit every taste and every budget at one of our locally owned restaurants.
