Welcome!

Benton County is located in north central Indiana, situated half-way between Indianapolis and Chicago on the Illinois State Line.  Our County is over 90 percent agriculture and is one of Indiana’s top agriculture communities thanks to our rich, high-yielding soil.  We may be known for our wide open spaces, rich farm ground and traditional farming, however in 2008 we welcomed the future and became known as the "Home of Indiana's FIRST wind farm."
