Anderson, Indiana

Anderson is the county seat of Madison County in Indiana and the principal city of the Anderson, Indiana Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses Madison County. Anderson incorporated as a city in 1865, with a population of nearly 1,300. Today, nearly 60,000 people reside in Anderson. The city is home to Anderson University (known previously as Anderson College), an accredited private Christian liberal arts university.

Between the mid to late 1800s, twenty industries were present in Anderson. In 1887, natural gas was discovered in the city. Subsequently, several factories (i.e. glass-making, etc.) and other industries that could use natural gas began to locate in Anderson. In 1912, however, the natural gas ran out causing several factories to vacate the city. The Commercial Club (the forerunner of the present Chamber of Commerce) persuaded some companies to stay and new ones to come to Anderson. For decades Delco Remy and Guide Lamp (later Fisher Guide) were the top two employers in the city. From 1913 through the 1950s, the Ward-Stilson Company was one of the country's largest producers of uniforms, regalia, furniture and props for the Freemasons, the Odd Fellows and dozens of other U.S. fraternal organizations. Anderson continues to thrive on its automotive manufacturing and engineering heritage as well as diversify its economic base across many industries. Companies such as Nestlé, Northstar Aerospace, HDP Home Products, and Muhlen Sohn are all located in Anderson.
