Harrison County was formed in 1808. It was the first Indiana county formed by the Indiana Territory Legislature and not the Governor. The county was created from land in Clark and Knox County. The county originally contained land that is now parts of Crawford, Floyd, Washington, Jackson, Clark, Lawrence, Perry, Scott and Orange Counties.
