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.

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.

Maybe you will come for one of our many seasonal festivals and events, a free outdoor concert, art walks on Main Street, a Chili Cook-Off, Fall Festival or just a day of family fun at one of our many parks. We know you will want to come back and visit again and again.
